A DAY after BSP chief Mayawati said she is ready to join hands with other "anti-BJP parties", Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday indicated that he, too, is ready for such a "maha gathbandhan" (grand alliance) before the 2019 General Election. "BJP is targeting me as they know that I will not stop highlighting the ways by which won in UP by managing the EVMs".

The appointment of Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati's brother Anand Kumar as party vice-president shows what parties that are based on a personality cult are all about.

Elaborating on the reasons for giving her brother this responsibility, Mayawati said as she has to spend maximum time in Lucknow she needed someone in Delhi for sharing her burden.

He is scheduled to attend a party meeting called by the BSP chief on April 19, the agenda of which has not been disclosed but party insiders said Mayawati has called it to introduce her brother to district level functionaries in UP.

The Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government has ordered a probe into the sale of 21 sugar mills in Uttar Pradesh during Mayawati's rule in 2010-11.

Speaking for the first time before her party workers on her medical condition which she said has forced her to read written texts, she said she lost one of her glands in 1996.

House Democrats are pushing for Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law, to lose his security clearance after he failed to disclose contacts he has had with Russian officials.

Mr. Yadav also raised the issue of alleged EVM tampering and said the Election Commission should explain it. Thefact is that I never held the sugar department.

"A thorough inquiry should be conducted into the Rs 1,100 crore scam. But I think she should eliminate the conditions she has put forward", said Agrawal.

"We worked a lot to change the power scenario in state, got many sub-stations made and installed new transformers", he said while pointing out that the present BJP government was now taking credit for all this.

The former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh also said that his party will play a crucial role in bringing opposition leaders together.

"People are being set afire alive, rapes have increased and the state government is doing nothing", Yadav said pointing out how during the SP government even a small crime was blown out of proportions to defame it.

Mayawati also charged the BJP with harassing and maligning her close relatives and herself.
