Defection of BSP MLAs: Mayawati says Cong again proved it is untrustworthy

Lucknow: BSP President Mayawati on Tuesday hit out at the Congress after six of her MLAs in Rajasthan switched sides, saying the party has once again proved that it is "unreliable" and "untrustworthy".

All six BSP MLAs in Rajasthan defected to the ruling Congress on Monday night. The development came ahead of civic body polls and bypolls for two assembly seats.

In a tweet, Mayawati said, "The Congress government in Rajasthan has once again broken BSP MLAs and proved that is an unreliable and untrustworthy party".

Terming it as a "betrayal", Mayawati said it comes at a time when the BSP was extending unconditional outside support to the Congress.

"Congress, instead of fighting against its bitter opponents and organisations always work to harm those parties which cooperate/support them. The Congress is thus an anti-SC/ST OBC party and has never been sincere and honest about the right to reservation of these classes," she said in another tweet.
