"BSP will not ally with any party in UP," says Mayawati

New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Monday made it clear that the BSP will not form any alliance with any party and will contest all the seats in Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections due in 2017.  She also criticized the BJP-led NDA Government for not initiating any strict action against Minister of State for External Affairs General (Retd.) V.K. Singh over his dog analogy and said that it reflected the anti-Dalit mindset of the ruling dispensation.

"I want to state it clearly that BSP will not have any alliance with any party. Neither with BJP nor Congress. Our party will contest all 403 seats and we will contest on our own strength," BSP chief Mayawati told reporters outside Parliament.

She also alleged that Samajwadi Party (SP) was spreading false "rumours" that her party will tie-up with BJP and claimed that it was SP which had joined hands with BJP.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati reiterated that General (Retd.) Singh should be sacked from the Union Cabinet with immediate effect. "We strongly condemn the foul language used by V.K Singh for the dalit family in Haryana. Before the start of the session, considering the seriousness of the case, we had already asked for his resignation and also for an immediate action to be taken against him," Mayawati told reporters outside the Parliament in New Delhi.

"I don't think the government is going to take any action against Singh. It shows the anti-Dalit mindset of the government," she added.

The BSP chief also alleged that the Congress and BJP were indulging in cheap politics on the atrocities committed on the Dalits.

"I don't even trust the intention of both the BJP and the Congress when they say that they would strive for justice for the dalits," she said.

The Delhi Police had earlier filed an Action Taken Report (ATR) in the Delhi Court and stated that no case was made out against the former army chief.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) had earlier summoned top cops in Ghaziabad, seeking a response on what action had been initiated against General (Retd.) Singh's 'dog' remark under the SC-ST Prevention of Atrocities Act.

General (Retd.) Singh, who is the Bharatiya Janata Party's MP from Ghaziabad, had while attempting to delink the Centre over the killing of two Dalit kids in Ballabhgarh said the government is blamed even if a stone is pelted at a dog.
