    Mayawati has reportedly sounded a stern message to the Congress for propping up Ravan, who is being seen as her rival as he can claim a large chunk of the Dalit votes, which is the main vote bank for the BSP.

    This development comes in the backdrop of the BSP walking out of an alliance with the Congress ahead of the Madhya Pradesh elections. Mayawati had sought for 40 out of the 231 seats in MP. She even came down in her demand and sought 30 seats later. The Congress however rejected her offer.
