BSP ends alliance with INLD in Haryana

CHANDIGARH: In an enormous setback to the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), its spouse of almost nine months Bahujan Samaj Party on Saturday referred to as off their alliance. The Mayawati-led party had asked the Chautalas to reunite if the INLD sought after to proceed its alliance after their joint candidate Umed Singh Redhu suffered a humiliating defeat within the Jind bypoll closing month and even misplaced his safety deposit.

The BSP has as an alternative opted to forge ties with Loktantra Suraksha Party (LSP), an outfit floated by Raj Kumar Saini, the insurrection BJP MP from Kurukshetra.

"Soon after the Jind byelection, our workers had raised this demand. Mayawati ji had given her advice and had asked the Chautalas to bring the family together. Our alliance was made at the time when the entire family was together and the alliance was heading towards a good result. The sudden development had put the things off track. On Friday night, Madam finalized her decision," mentioned BSP Haryana in-charge Megh Raj.

"Out of around 3,400 votes polled for the INLD candidate, Redhu managed just 1,000 votes and rest of them were BSP votes. Thereafter, we decided to rethink on the alliance. Our votebank was disturbed," Megh Raj claimed.

The INLD, Haryana's major opposition party, was once very philosophical in its reaction to the end of its alliance with the BSP. "It is very common in the politics where alliances are formed and broken. Elections are near and political parties decide what suits them the best. We are not affected by the BSP-LSP alliance in any manner," INLD general secretary R S Chaudhary mentioned.

BSP will box eight candidates in Haryana

Both Saini and Megh Raj gave main points of the seatsharing formulation between two parties — BSP will box eight candidates and LSP two out of 10 seats within the Lok Sabha polls and LSP will contest 55 seats and BSP 35 within the meeting elections.

“The distribution of the constituencies shall be completed later. The seat-sharing formulation is a clear indication of the CM face of the party,” defined Megh Raj.

Saini dominated out the opportunity of being part of any grand alliance in Haryana. “We have already finalized our seat-sharing formulation, therefore no room for any other alliance,” he mentioned.

Joint Panipat rally on Feb 17 The two parties will organize a joint rally of activists in Panipat on February 17. Megh Raj mentioned round 50,000 workers of BSP and LSP will attend the rally and the alliance will release its election marketing campaign for parliamentary elections from that day.
