In a written statement, Mayawati said, " I want to suggest to the Congress that it should not use language for its political expediency during an election campaign that ends up benefiting the BJP and RSS.

"It is now apparent how they (Congress) in election speeches dubbed the JD(S) as the B-team of BJP, particularly in regions with significant Muslim population, thereby causing division in votes. This resulted in victory mostly of BJP candidates in these regions. BJP could not have got 104 MLAs had the Congress not indulged in this kind of rhetoric."

The BSP had contested in 20 seats in Karnataka and won one. The BSP has said that it would be in alliance with the JDD(S) during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections too.
