Lucknow, May 19: Bahujan Samajwadi Party(BSP) supremo Mayawati, who was spitting venom at the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) pre-polls; now vows outside support to UPA.
Mayawati, on Tuesday, May 18, told reporters at the beginning of a BSP national executive meeting that the party will extend 'unconditional' support the central government. She said that this move comes in order to keep BJP-led NDA out of power.
"The party has agreed to provide outside support to the UPA government without any conditions," she said.
She also added that BSP leader Satish C. Mishra has already been directed to go to the president and hand over their letter of support to UPA.
UPA won 263 seats which is nine short of a complete majority. With the support pouring in from various parties, getting those seats would not be a problem for the Congress-led alliance.
