BKD to outdo BSP in Assembly elections

Written by: Staff

Dehra Dun, Oct 27 (UNI) Ousted BSP leader Isham Singh today announced he would set up his own political party to ensure the defect of party supremo Mayawati in the forthcoming assembly elections.

''Eighty MLAs from Uttar Pradesh are on my side,'' Mr Singh, the former Chief of the Uttaranchal BSP, said while speaking to mediapersons at Rishikesh yesterday, adding that the process to form BKD has begun at war level in Uttaranchal, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab and Chhattisgarh.

''Our main aim is to outdo BSP as its supreme head has indulged in taking commission for party tickets and exploiting the Dalits,'' he alleged.

The BSP has left aside the policy and the thinking of late Kanshiram and Baba Saheb Ambedkar on which the party was formed, resulting in most of the dalits moving away from it, Mr Singh asserted.

''Its condition in Uttar Pradesh is also not stable, and BKD will inflict the last blow to it,'' he said.

Mr Singh declared another ousted BSP leader Phool Singh Chaudhary as Uttaranchal Chief of BKD and asserted that the new party would emerge as third alternative in Uttaranchal.

However, he denied any possibility of forging an alliance with any other party in the forthcoming elections.

''As 80 MLAs are with me, we will contest Assembly as well as Lok Sabha elections on our own on all the seats,'' he asserted.
