Bahujan Samaj Party To Give Outside Support To New UPA Government
The chief of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the CM of Uttar
Pradesh, Mayawati has decided on Tuesday (May 19) to give outside
support to the new Congress-led UPA government. BSP’s support will help
the Congress-led UPA to go well ahead of the halfway mark in
parliament. Congress-led UPA has bagged 263 seats in the recently
concluded general elections.
While announcing her party’s support to UPA the BSP supremo said
that there is no demand or any condition for offering the support.
According her, all the 21 MPs of BSP will offer their support to the
new government without any condition. Mayawati also informed that she
has notified party leader Satish C. Mishra to meet the President and
hand over the letter of support.
The Bahujan Samaj Party, which fought the Lok Sabha elections under
the Third Front, has taken the new decision of supporting the UPA
government to keep BJP out of the power. Mayawati said that after the
declaration of election results she had congratulated both Manmohan
Singh and Sonia Gandhi for the UPA’s resounding victory. Apart from
BSP, the JD(S) has also announced support of its three MPs. In the 15th
Lok Sabha elections, Congress has gained the upper hand by winning 206
seats alone. The victory has also allowed Congress to dictate terms as
far as distributing portfolios is concerned.
