Lucknow, Jul 24 (UNI) In what would be the first show of strength amidst new bonhomie with the Left parties, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has convened an All India National Convention of the party here on August 9 to decide future course of action ahead of Lok Sabha polls.
''The party would announce next course of action after 'rigged' vote of confidence by the Congress-led UPA at the Centre,'' Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and the BSP supremo Mayawati announced at a press conference here today.
Sounding elated over the newly-acquired leadership of United National Progressive Alliance (UNPA), though not in black and white, she said the UPA would be handed befitting reply to 'unfair' means the latter adopted to prove its majority on the floor of Parliament on July 22.
Reiterating the UPA proved the majority by 'Sam, Daam, Dand , Bhed( By hook or by crook), Ms Mayawati said it was for everyone to see that Congress had lost moral propriety to lead the nation. ''The country is shocked and the entire media has gone frustrated over the manner, the UPA horse-traded to secure vote of confidence,'' she said.
The Left parties and other constituents of the UNPA were concerned over the fact that the UPA achieved the vote of confidence by 'defeating the Parlaiment' and 'murdering the democracy', she said.
Ms Mayawati said, ''the conduct of the Congress-led UPA had prompted the BSP, Left parties and UNPA to launch nation-wide agitation against the former and some vital issues the country was faced with.
The BSP leader said her party was extremely critical of the UPA-Samajwadi Party combine for proving the majority in the most unsrcuplous way which had shamed the democracy and Parliament.
''My party condemns it and believes the people of this country would never forget the undemocratic and unparliamentary behaviour of these parties and gives reply to them in the times to come,'' she fumed.
Reminding the Mulayam Singh Yadav-led SP to take lesson from its six MPs who had voted against the UPA in rebellion against the wrong policies of their party, Ms Mayawati said even the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) should be remorseful for their action what she described as being 'responsible' for saving the UPA.
She, however, did not divulge further on the allegation against the NDA.
Sparing nothing against the Congress, the BSP leader said it was admonishable that instead of tendering apology to the nation, it was in celebration mode.
The CM was here after a hectic political activities in New Delhi during the last few days.
