New Delhi, Jun 21 (UNI) The Congress today asserted that the withdrawal of support by Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) would not affect the Government, and the reasons given by her for her decision were ''not sustainable''.
''The withdrawal of support by the BSP to the UPA Government will not affect the Government as it is in a majority,'' Congress AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters.
''And the reasons given by her for withdrawing support were not sustainable,'' he added.
As far as inflation was concerned, he said it was a global phenomenon.
The BSP, which was supporting the coalition at the Centre from the outside through its 19 MPs, withdrew its support to the Government, accusing it of failing to control inflation and meting out step-motherly treatment to her party and the Uttar Pradesh government.
Ms Mayawati also said that the Congress tried to tarnish its image in every way.
