While addressing at a closed door meeting with senior BSP leaders to decide party's strategy for upcoming local body elections in Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati said that the decision of forming an alliance for 2019 Lok Sabha election will be taken after considering the 'janaadhar' of Samajwadi Party and Congress.

The BSP supremo also warned party leaders against demanding money from candidates seeking tickets.
