Mayawati said that BSP had ordered the MLAs to vote against Congress in any test of strength in the Rajasthan Assembly. “If they don’t do so, their party members will be cancelled.”
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot just got off with a warning from Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Mayawati today, declaring she would go all the way to the Supreme Court against Gehlot for “theft of MLA’s.”
Ashok Gehlot is just one ahead of the majority mark of 101 in the 200-member Rajasthan assembly. Six MLAs who merged the Rajasthan BSP into the Congress in September helped him secure his tally. BJP leader Madan Dilawar has also taken to Rajasthan court against the merger and the case has been made on the basis of legality. The MLA’s cannot merge into the Congress in just one state as BSP is a national party.
This strongly indicates that Mayawati is considering joining forces with BJP just to get back at Congress, though she strongly disagreed with the allegations made by Congress. The conclusion is that Mayawati will not back down until she gets back at Congress.
“BSP could have gone to the court earlier too but we were looking for a time to teach the Congress party and Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot a lesson. Now we have decided to go to the Court. We will not let this matter alone. We will go even to the Supreme Court.
Can Congress high command not see who the thief in Rajasthan is? Can they not see Mr Gehlot? It is easy for them to point fingers at BSP. We want to teach Congress a lesson.
They want to hide their faults so they call us puppets of BJP. They should stop the fake outrage,” Mayawati said.
The BSP leader feels betrayed by Congress as they have always had the support of BSP. Now Gehlot has been accused of “merging the MLA’s with the Congress unconstitutionally, out of malicious intent.”
