Amit Shah’s “Masterstroke” Seals SP-BSP Alliance For 2019
Game over for BJP?
Until a few hours back it seemed like BJP President had pulled another rabbit out of his hat. BJP was able to defeat Mayawati’s Rajya Sabha nominee. Some BSP MLAs cross-voted in favour of the BJP candidate and were, therefore, able to help the BJP win another seat in the Rajya Sabha.
In politics, matters can change drastically within hours. In a speech that may wipe the grin off Amit Shah’s face for good, Mayawati declared that the SP-BSP duo would defeat the BJP in 2019
“I would like to tell BJP and company that their malpractices will not succeed in breaking the ties between SP and BSP. Yesterday’s results have not affected the SP-BSP tie up in any way, not even by an inch.”, she said.
She also accused the BJP of indulging in malpractices: “We tried to ensure that this election does not become a blot on the face of democracy. BJP did not deter from indulging in malpractices. They exerted all their force to ensure that the BSP candidate does not win. We believe Narendra Modi and Amit Shah misused the system to make their candidates win. An environment of fear was created due to which there was also some cross-voting done.”
Finally, she sounded the death knell for the BJP’s electoral prospects in 2019: “Money and muscle power has won in Uttar Pradesh RS elections. BSP & SP will teach them a good lesson in UP election 2019“
