BSP to go it alone in Madhya Pradesh


Bhopal : Claiming that several leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress were eager to join the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Uttar Pradesh Higher Education Minister Ranganath Mishra here Sunday asserted that his party would contest on its own all the 230 assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh.

Mishra, who was here to participate in a convention of Brahmins organized by his party, told reporters: “No alliance will be forged and we will enter the fray with full confidence as has been the case with Uttar Pradesh where our social engineering concept paid dividends.”

“The lack of development in the state will also help us gain power. The people are fed up with both the Congress and the BJP,” he claimed.

Addressing the convention, BSP state president Bhujbal Singh Ahirwar said that a group of committed workers was working hard at the ground level for taking the party to power in Madhya Pradesh.

“More than 1,000 brahmins have come to the party fold during the convention. Over 60 such conventions have been held across the state in the recent past and many more would be organised in the days to come,” said BSP leader Komal Pande.
