Mayawati takes indirect dig at Mamata
Kolkata, April 1: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati took an indirect dig West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at a poll rally held here on Monday. She said at the rally that West Bengal is no exception when it comes to corruption and the condition of the poor in the state hasn't changed despite a change of guard three years ago.

The BSP has fielded 38 candidates in West Bengal in this Lok Sabha election and according to Mayawati, the party decided to field the candidates in a state where it has little strength to ensure that whatever little support it has here doesn't go waste, a report published in Bengali daily Ei Samay said.

Mayawati said condition of the poor hasn't improved in Bengal even after change

The BSP chief made a strong criticism of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and also expressed her displeasure with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. The BSP has decided to contest the Lok Sabha election alone this time, same as Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.

Political observers feel that the post-poll behaviour of the three heavyweight woman leaders in the country, namely, Mayawati, Mamata and Jayalalithaa will be key in deciding the future course of the national politics. Mamata Banerjee and Jayalalithaa have already begun to show signs of coming together to strengthen the federal front after the Left's deal with the AIADMK supremo collapsed. It will be interesting to see how the equation between Mamata and Mayawati develops from here.
