Lucknow. Senior BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra has rejected “200 per cent” any alliance with the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. He demanded that his party form a government with a clear majority in the state. Mishra, who is considered a close confidante of party supremo Mayawati, told PTI in an interview that the Bahujan Samaj Party would not form any alliance with any other party. “We will not ally or support any other party,” Mishra said. We want to sit in the opposition. “
The BSP general secretary said, “The BSP will form its government in 2022 with an absolute majority. Even after the election, we will never go with the BJP in any other situation and this is 200 percent final decision. It is to be noted that the BSP, the most populous state in the country, has formed a separate government in Uttar Pradesh with both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Samajwadi Party.
What does the history of the alliance say?
In 1993, the BSP formed an alliance with the SP and at that time Mulayam Singh led the Yadav government. In 1995, the SP was out of the alliance and Mayawati became the chief minister for a few months in support of the BJP. In 1997 and 2002, the BSP again formed a coalition government with the BJP.

What is the mathematics of BSP?
In 2007, relying on the Dalit-Brahmin alliance, the BSP won 206 seats in the 403-member assembly and formed its own government. The BSP is once again trying to revive this winning “Dalit-Brahmin” coordination by organizing a series of ‘Brahmin Conferences’ across the state as part of this exercise. In Uttar Pradesh, Dalits make up about 20 per cent of the total population of the state, while Brahmins make up 13 per cent.
Satish Mishra demanded the formation of a BSP government in the 2022 assembly elections.
The Brahmin face of the BSP, Mishra, said bluntly, “The BSP has started the trend and all parties are aiming to attract Brahmins in the same vein. But 80 percent Brahmins are with us. Referring to AIMIM leader Asaduddin Waisi, he said there was an old tradition of persuading Muslims from other states during elections in Uttar Pradesh, adding that these leaders would not succeed in trying to ‘confuse’ the Muslim community.
Here are the special demands of Mishra
* Not only Brahmins, but members of all other ethnic and religious groups with direct experience of the Mayawati government are also supporting the party this time.
* The party is ready to surpass its performance in the 200th election.
* Muslims have already seen the Mayawati government and they know how safe they were at the time.
* Some smaller parties get BJP patronage and they suddenly appear to cut their caste votes during elections, but it will have no effect.
* Leaders who have been given honorary positions by Behen Ji and who have cheated in return are unlikely to return to the country. If the leaders of other parties want to join the Bahujan Samaj Party, they are welcome. “
Notably, in July, the BSP expelled party leader Lalji Verma and veteran leader Ram Achal Rajvar in the assembly. In this context, Mishra made it clear that now there will be no place in the party for leaders who betray the party.
