"The ruling SP has lost its credibility among the people. And as expected the party has made lucrative promises in its manifesto, but the people are not going to believe in it," Mayawati said.
    
Referring to the promises the SP had made for the Muslim community in the manifesto released on Wednesday, Mayawati said, "The loss which Muslims had to face during several riots that took place from Allahabad to Muzaffarnagar, they are not going to get lured by such promises."

BSP was in power in Uttar Pradesh during the 2009 Lok Sabha elections. Besides, the party also faced criticism for not speaking much on Muzaffarnagar communal violence which rocked Western Uttar Pradesh last year.

This time too, the party leaders believe that only they can defeat BJP as Mayawati-led party can benefit from the polarizing effect generated by the riots.

May be, according to this very strategy, the BSP has maintained silence but it’s being said that it can boomerang on the changed situation generated by the riots.
