Mamata Banerjee says BJP is attacking democracy, agrees with Mayawati


She cstigated the Congress brass for calling JD (S) the "B-team" of BJP during poll rallies.

"I want to suggest to the Congress that it should not use language for its political expediency during election campaigns that end up benefiting the BJP and RSS", Mayawati said in a written statement issued on Thursday. This resulted in victory mostly of BJP candidates in these regions. Mayawati had earlier bailed out Congress government in Uttarakhand in 2016 and its two MLAs voted for it in the floor test following disqualification of its nine MLAs who defected to BJP camp.

As proof, Rogan offered the July 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, which he says was " committed by Russian agents with Russian weapons ".

In his public meetings in the run-up to the May 12 polls, Rahul had accused the H D Deve Gowda-led party of tacitly allying with the BJP to defeat the Congress. She said that the b-team rhetoric is what helped the BJP emerge as the single largest party n Karnataka.

"It is a conspiracy to destroy the constitution made by Baba Saheb Ambedkar, since they (BJP) came to power they have been misusing government machinery, thereby attacking democracy", Mayawati said. In fact, Mayawati's push has brought about a situation wherein the kingmaker - JD (S) - is on the cusp of becoming the king. "This is condemnable", Mayawati stated. BSP insiders said that Mayawati asked her close aide and party Rajya Sabha MP Ashok Siddharth, who is also Karnataka BSP in charge, to meet Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad as soon as projections showed a hung assembly with no party in a position to form government on its own. "Due to similar inappropriate action by Raj Bhawan, the BSP too had to suffer in Uttar Pradesh in the past", she said.
