Lucknow, Jul 9 (UNI) With hectic politics underway to save the 50 month-old UPA government at the centre, the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh has yet to decide on which way to go, either to vote against the Centre, to support it or to abstain in parliament.

BSP supremo and Chief Minister Mayawati had last week categorically said that she would decide on the party's decision on the support at the appropriate time.

''I will open my cards when it is needed'', she had told the mediapersons.

Ms Mayawati had only expressed her opposition to the nuclear deal and termed it as anti-muslim.

Meanwhile, BSP General Secretary and Rajya Sabha member Satish Chandra Mishra today denied any move to join the United National Progressive Alliance(UNPA).

He also ridiculed the claim by some Samajwadi Party leaders that a few BSP MPs could be poached by the UPA.

'' We are intact and there was no question of any bickerings in our group'', he said claiming that there was no need of any meeting of the BSP MPs in view of the political scenario in the coutnry.

The BSP general secretary ,however, questioned on the recent visit of the so called SP leader ( Amar Singh) to the United States.'' He must reveal the deal made by him with the US and the UPA government for giving support to the nuclear deal, Mr Mishra said and demanded clarification.

The BSP leader also refused to divulge further about the party's strategy in the present scenario.

The BSP with 17 members in the Lok Sabha, would play an important role during the expected vote of confidence in Parliament for the continuation of the UPA government.
