Bhopal, Jan 20 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Minister Ranganath Mishra today claimed that the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) would go it alone in the Madhya Pradesh assembly polls scheduled later this year, by fielding its own candidates in all the 230 seats.
''No alliance will be forged and our chief strategy will be to enter the arena by applying the social engineering formula as was done in (neighbouring) Uttar Pradesh,'' he told mediapersons here. Mr Mishra was in the state capital to take part in a 'Brahmin Sammelan' organised by the BSP.
The minister, who has been making election-related tours for about six months, said his party has organised about 60 such 'sammelans' and more would take place.
''This state's upper castes look up to the BSP with great hopes.
No development has taken place here for decades and the denizens are fed up of both the Congress and the BJP. Several key leaders of those parties are eager to join the BSP that may emerge as a better alternative,'' he added.
