With the sound and fury in Samajwadi Party catching the fancy of its archrival BSP, its supremo Mayawati on Saturday told senior leaders and party candidates to make voters aware of the family feud in the ruling party and not fritter away their ballots to indirectly help BJP.
Mayawati convened a meeting of senior BSP leaders and party candidates for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections to issue necessary directives for going to polls.
The BSP supremo, who has been highlighting the sharp divide in SP at her public meetings and rallies, asked senior leaders to make the electorate aware of the feud which did not augur well for the state’s development.
“If the ruling party cannot put its own house in order, what can it do for the welfare of the state,” she was quoted as saying by a leader who attended the meeting but requested anonymity.
Mayawati has been cautioning Muslim voters not to waste their ballots by backing the faction-ridden SP as split in their votes would ultimately help BJP.
