After losing the UP elections, Rahul Gandhi has made a big disclosure. He said that the Congress wanted to forge an alliance with the BSP before the elections. Mayawati was also offered the chief minister’s post, but she did not respond.
Rahul Gandhi said that Mayawati did not contest the election this time. We had offered him an alliance. We had even said that he can become the chief minister but he did not respond to our proposal. According to Rahul Gandhi, he did not want to contest the elections due to fear of ED and CBI.
He said, ‘We have a lot of respect for Kashi Ram. He had strengthened the Scheduled Caste community. Congress is weak but that is not the issue. SC community should be strong but Mayawati says she will not fight. The road is open but she doesn’t want to fight because of CBI, ED, Pegasus.
In Uttar Pradesh, both the Congress and the BSP contested the elections on their own. On one hand Congress won two seats while Mayawati’s BSP won one seat with its worst performance. After the election results, the BSP chief also mentioned about Muslims. He also said that his vote went one-sided to the SP.
