Expelled BSP MP to float new party tomorrow
New Delhi, Sep 9 (UNI) Accusing Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati of having deviated from the Dalit agenda and succumbed to 'Brahmanical' designs, expelled Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader and Rajya Sabha Member Isham Singh today announced he would will launch a new political party tomorrow to ''fulfill the dreams of party founder Kanshiram".
Addressing a press conference here, Mr Singh said he was compelled to take this extreme step after having seen that Ms Mayawati was rewarding the Brahmins and other persons with money clout and disregarding the sincere party workers.
He said he was expelled from the party because he had come forward to expose the attempts to undermine the very basis of the party.
''I was shown the door without any notice, and I came to know about it only through the press, which was an absolutely illegal manner of divesting anyone of his party membership,'' said Mr Singh.
Ms Maywati had accused Mr Singh of indulging in anti-party activities while expelling him last week Mr Singh said he later asked for the chargesheet to reply to the allegations against him but was not given this opportunity and served the expulsion order.
He claimed that Ms Mayawati got rid of him beacuse he had been gaining popularity among the Dalits by raising the issues relevant to them.
Mr Singh also accused Ms Mayawati of isolating party founder Kanshiram from his workers and the family.
The expelled BSP leader said tomorrow he would partcipate in a seminar on 'Samajik Parivartan and Aarthik Mukti Aandolan: Dasha and Disha, Karan and Samadhan (Social Change and Economic Independence: State and Direction, Causes and Remedies) and launch his new party on the occasion.
The function would take place at Ambedkar Bhawan here.
