New Delhi: Even though seven states are going to Assembly elections next year, but for the Bahujan Samaj Party maintaining its stronghold in Uttar Pradesh is of primary concern.

The party is leaving no stone unturned to foil the aim of Congress to win over the ‘the dalit vote bank’ of the party.

BSP supremo and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minster Mayawati in a meeting of national executive and office bearers in national capital on Saturday discussed about the strategies for the upcoming elections.

“We need to be alert as the opposition parties will adopt all form of tactics to hinder our UP poll campaign,” said Mayawati while addressing the party members.

Citing the controversies surrounding the UPA government, the BSP supremo also hinted at mid-term general elections. She asked the party workers and senior party leaders to gear up to face subsequent challenges. 

Mayawati also sought progress reports from the party presidents of different states and directed them to prepare for the election campaign.
