BJP's ally predicts Mayawati as next PM

Lucknow May 14 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party's ally Suheldeo Bhartiya Samaj Party president here on Tuesday claimed Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati will be the next prime minister of the country.
''The SP-BSP-RLD alliance is posing stiff challenge for the BJP in UP. Against the 73 Lok Sabha seats won by the BJP along with its ally Apna Dal in UP during the 2014 parliamentary elections, this time the BJP will not get more than 15-20 seats while the 'gathbandhan' might fetch 50 plus seats. The Congress will also improve its tally. As far as I can see, there will be a Dalit prime minister, may be BSP chief Mayawati or someone else,” the party's chief Om Prakash Rajbhar said.
SBSP is an ally of the BJP having four MLAs in UP assembly.
Rajbhar had tendered his resignation as a Cabinet Minister on April 13 and said that he and his party has "nothing to do with the Yogi Adityanath government anymore".
Disgruntled with the BJP, Rajbhar also said that his party is “not in any kind of alliance with the saffron party” and would rather try to influence in remaining 14 seats in east UP. “We are rallying for the BJP. We had asked for only one seat — Ghosi, but they (BJP) refused that also. The BJP will loose the seats of Gorakhpur, Ballia and Ghazipur,” said Rajbhar.
Meanwhile, Rajbhar launched his campaign against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Varanasi on Tuesday. SBSP has fielded one Surendra Rajbhar from Varanasi seat.
National general secretary of SBSP, Arun Rajbhar has announced that his party will be supporting the SP-BSP alliance candidate in Maharajganj and Bansgaon and the Congress candidate in Mirzapur.
