Will never accept BJP’s offer of President's post: Mayawati

Mayawati

In her second big statement after Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader  Mayawati has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of spreading rumours that she will be "made the President".

Reacting to what she has termed “false propaganda” spread to her supporters, that this was to happen once the BJP won the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, Mayawati said she was a “disciple of Kanshi Ram" who had also refused such an offer in the past.

She said, “How can I accept such a post when we know that it will be the end of our party. So I want to make it clear to every BSP office bearer that in the interest of our party and movement, I will not accept any offer for the President's post from the BJP or other parties and they should never be misled in future."

The BSP had won in one seat out of 403 this assembly election and in 2017 it had won 19 seats.

 

 

According to the veteran leader, in the recently concluded election, it was the BJP, via the RSS who “spread false propaganda” that “if a BSP government is not formed in UP, we will make your 'Behenji' the President of the country. That is why you should allow BJP to come to power." She however asserted that she “cannot even imagine such a thing in my dream." Mayawati reminded, "They (BJP) also know that long ago Kanshi Ram ji had rejected this offer and I am his firm disciple."
