HIGHLIGHTS
    • BSP has decided to go it alone with all its strength in Haryana Assembly polls.
    • BSP chief Mayawati made this announcement through a tweet.
    • Mayawati was recently re-elected the party's national president.

In a late night development, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) called off its agreement with Dushyant Chautala's Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) for the upcoming Haryana Assembly election and decided to field candidates on all seats in the state. “BSP will go alone in Haryana Assembly polls, field candidates on all seats,” she tweeted. 

According to the BSP, the agreement reached with Dushyant Chautala for the upcoming Assembly elections in Haryana is inappropriate in terms of the proposed seat-sharing formula, BSP president Mayawati said in a tweet in Hindi, adding that the tie-up is called off.

The party high command has decided to go it alone with all its strength and contest on all the seats, she said in another tweet. Chautala had last month announced that his party and the BSP would contest the Haryana Assembly polls as allies.

Mayawati was recently re-elected the party's national president after which she vowed never to "stop or bend, let alone break".

She was elected BSP president unanimously at a special meeting of senior office-bearers of the party's central executive committee, its state units and representatives selected from across the country, a party release said.

On her unanimous re-election, the 63-year-old BSP leader expressed gratitude to all her party workers and followers and assured them of her continued commitment to take forward the BSP movement.

She said she would remain ever ready as usual to pursue the humanitarian missions of sants, gurus and great men, born in the Dalit, Adivasi and other backward classes from time to time.

She vowed never to "stop or bend, let alone break" in the interest of the party and the movement.

Mayawati said the excellent work of the BSP governments in Uttar Pradesh is an example on the strength of which the BSP can seek people's support in the upcoming elections in various states.
