The Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia (PSPL) president Shivpal Yadav has lashed out at Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati for her statement that people should not waste their votes by supporting Shivpal’s party, the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia (PSPL). Shivpal Yadav, who is former Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh’s younger brother, had broken away from the SP and formed his own party in 2018.
Reacting to Mayawati’s statement, Yadav said it was ironic that a leader who had herself joined hands with the BJP to form the government was accusing him of supporting the saffron party. He also warned his nephew and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati that their alliance in Uttar Pradesh was incomplete without the PSPL. “Only a secular front can defeat the BJP,” he said.
Taking pot shots at Shivpal, Mayawati said the money spent by the BJP to promote him would go to waste.
