LUCKNOW: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati herself will not contest in the forthcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. BSP general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra said in a statement to a news channel on Tuesday that party supremo Mayawati would not contest the elections. Meanwhile, Satish Mishra himself announced that he would not contest the elections.
According to the election dates announced by the Election Commission, Assembly elections will be held in Uttar Pradesh in seven phases from February 10 to March 7. Satish Mishra is the BSP leader in the Rajya Sabha. Mayawati was also a Rajya Sabha member before this but she resigned before her term expired.
Asked about the efforts of all parties to woo the Brahmin voters, Mishra said that SP President Akhilesh Yadav had taken the initiative to intimidate the Brahmin community. But Farsa fell. Brahmin society is not innocent enough to forget the atrocities committed during the tenure of SP and BJP government. In the last five years, 500 Brahmins have been killed. Similar atrocities have taken place during the tenure of SP.
Satish Mishra said that the BJP leadership had also recently called a meeting of Brahmin leaders in Delhi. Its purpose was to consider measures to quell the anger of the Brahmins. Satish Mishra said that according to the information received, the Brahmin leaders had bluntly told the BJP leadership in the meeting that no further measures would be taken to quell the anger of the Brahmins.
