Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Sunday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to create differences between SP and BSP in order to save himself and his reputation because the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is losing the election and asserted that the grand alliance in Uttar Pradesh is ‘strong’ and will continue even after Lok Sabha Elections 2019.
"Our gathbandhan is a strong gathbandhan. PM Narendra Modi is not able to digest it. PM Modi is trying to play divide and rule policy in SP-BSP alliance. He (Modi) is trying to create differences between SP and BSP,” Mayawati said while addressing a press meet on Sunday.
She also clarified that BSP will not have any sort of alliance with the Congress.
"The whole country knows that we have not nor we will have any sort of alliance with the Congress," the former chief minister said.
Her remarks come a day after PM Modi accused the Samajwadi Party of going soft on the Congress, saying the two parties are playing a ‘big game’ against BSP chief.
"The SP is going soft on the Congress, but its alliance partner BSP chief Mayawati is attacking the Congress," Modi said in Pratapgarh.
PM Modi also that said the SP-BSP grand-alliance partners will be at each other's throats when the results are out on May 23.
“It was said you (Mayawati) will be made the prime minister, but now `Behenji' has understood that the SP and the Congress are playing a big game with her," he said.
