Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati on Thursday appealed to party workers in Maharashtra to start preparing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, saying the party should have become a strong force in the state by now. BSP chief Mayawati held a meeting with senior and responsible leaders of Maharashtra on Thursday in a series of state-wise organization review ahead of next year’s Lok Sabha elections.
According to a statement issued by the BSP here, in the meeting, former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Mayawati expressed sorrow that her party could not become a major political force in Maharashtra, the birthplace of Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar and Manyavar Kanshi Ram.
He said that the BSP has set a record by forming its government four times in Uttar Pradesh.
Mayawati said that special dedication is needed in Maharashtra, especially for the preparation of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, for which everyone needs to engage with body, mind and money from now itself.
The BSP chief also expressed the possibility that there could be elections for the Lok Sabha as well as the Vidhansabha. He said that there is an atmosphere of political instability in Maharashtra due to continuous struggle for political power and selfishness, mutual upheaval and disharmony.
The BSP chief asked the workers in 48 Lok Sabha constituencies and 288 assembly constituencies of Maharashtra to mobilize with full force.
