Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Tuesday clearly stated they will forge an alliance with the Congress party only if they are offered a respectable number of seats.

Mayawati's reaction came amid reports that she asked the Congress party to forge an alliance in election-bound states including Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan.

"The BSP will contest elections as a part of coalition government only if it gets a respectable number of seats," Mayawati said in a press briefing here.

During the press briefing, Mayawati also cornered the Centre and said over Alwar lynching incident and said that it is a "deed of narrow-minded".

"Mob lynching is a deed of narrow-minded BJP members and supporters, but they consider it patriotism. I condemn the Alwar lynching incident but think that BJP would not be able to take appropriate action in the case. Therefore, I request Court to intervene," she said.

Highlighting the rise in lynching incidents in the country, she said the BJP government will always be remembered for taking immature decisions.

"The BJP government will be remembered for taking immature decisions that have led to an increase in incidents of mob lynching of innocent people, giving freedom to commit murders, damaging the democracy in the nation and endangering peoples' lives," Mayawati said. (ANI)
