A day after the SP and the BSP declared their pre-poll alliance in Uttar Pradesh for the 2019 Lok Sabha election, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav reached Mayawati’s residence in the city to welcome the step taken by two parties and predicted a whitewash for the BJP in both UP and Bihar.
Coming down heavily on the Centre’s 10% quota for the economically weak from the upper castes, Tejashwi said that the BJP wants to implement “Nagpur laws” in the country, a reference to the BJP working at the behest of the RSS, which is headquartered in Nagpur.
“There’s an atmosphere today where they want to scrap Baba Saheb’s Constitution and implement ‘Nagpur laws’. People welcome the step taken by Mayawati ji and Akhilesh ji,” said Tejashwi.
The young leader maintained that he and his party were not against Modi, but that it was an ideological fight.
“We are not here to defeat Modi Ji, we don’t have any personal enmity with him. It is an ideological fight, we have always been opposing the BJP and the RSS. We want to work for our country and save the constitution of the country,” said Tejashwi.
The meeting between BSP Chief Mayawati and Tejashwai Yadav lasted around two hours.
