BSP-SP 'fake friendship' will end on May 23: PM Narendra Modi
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday assured people that Bahujan Samajwadi Party and Samajwadi Party's 'fake friendship' will end on May 23.
"You very well know the truth of those who make empty promises and proclaim hollow friendship. One friendship was also seen during the UP polls. The friendship got over with the elections," said PM Modi referring to the Samajwadi Party’s alliance with the Congress for the assembly elections in 2017.
Former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Congress President had joined hands but their alliance did not last long as they parted their ways ahead of Lok Sabha bypolls for the seats vacated by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya, who were elected to the Lok Sabha in 2014 parliamentary polls.
Samajwadi Party later joined hands with Bahujan Samaj Party and the Rashtriya Lok Dal to contest the bypolls. The grand alliance, overlooking Congress, is also contesting the national elections.
On the BSP-SP alliance for the Lok Sabha polls, PM Modi said, “Another friendship has been formed. But the date on which it will break up is already fixed. Should I tell you the date when they will move apart? May 23, Thursday.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's sharp attack came one day after Mayawati shared dias with Mulayam Singh Yadav at an election rally.
