Departure of Maurya is a good riddance for the party: Mayawati
Lucknow: In a sharp reaction, soon after Swami Prasad Maurya resigned from the party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chief Mayawati said, ‘it is a good riddance for the party’.
“He left the party because his children were denied ticket,” she added. Making a personal attack on him she said,” Maurya’s son is not in his control and he left the party because of love of his children,” said Mayawati at a press conference in Lucknow on Wednesday.
“The party had committed mistake earlier by giving ticket to Maurya and his children but the Bahujan Samaj Party will not repeat the mistake. The party would have sacked him in a day or two in any case. It is good that he has resigned himself. That saved our time and energy,” she said.
Though his children had lost in the Assembly elections he was demanding tickets for them again not learning any lesson from the past.
BSP will not encourage nepotism:
“Unlike Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, BSP will not give tickets to family members. We do not believe in nepotism,” said BSP Supremo.
Mayawati dared Swami Prasad Maurya to reveal the amount of money that he gave to the party for giving tickets to his children.
There is no dearth of money for me:
“My parents named me—Mayawati. ‘Maya ko Maya ki koi kami nahi hai,’” she said
