About a year ago, Mayawati’s father had died at the age of 95, the statement added.
Mayawati has started campaigning for next year’s assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.
The head of the BSP has said that she will not ally with any political party and expressed her confidence that her party will obtain an “absolute majority, like the one we obtained in 2007.”
“BSP will have none”chunavi samjhauta“(voting agreement) with either party. We will compete on our own. We are entering into an agreement with people from all sectors of society to unite them; this alliance is permanent. Do not intend to enter into an alliance with any party,” he said. .
Mayawati also claimed that the Samajwadi Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party are two sides of the same coin.
The BSP chief also criticized Priyanka Gandhi’s party, Congress, accusing it of trying to mislead voters with false promises in the polls.
“If Congress had kept even 50 percent of the poll promises, they would not have lost power in the Center, Uttar Pradesh and in most states,” he said.
Elections for 403 assembly constituencies in Uttar Pradesh are due to take place early next year.
In the 2017 Assembly elections, the BJP won a landslide victory by winning 312 seats in the Assembly. The party won 39.67 percent of the vote in elections for the 403-member Assembly.
