Te­jashwi meets Maya, greets her on UP coali­tion

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - HTNATION -

LUCKNOW/PATNA: Leader of the op­po­si­tion in Bi­har assem­bly Te­jashwi Ya­dav met Bahu­jan Sa­maj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati in Lucknow on Sun­day night to con­grat­u­late her for stitch­ing an al­liance ahead of the 2019 polls. He is likely to meet SP chief Akhilesh Ya­dav on Mon­day.

Soon after the for­mal an­nounce­ment of the BSP-SP al­liance on Satur­day, Te­jashwi had wel­comed the new com­bi­na­tion call­ing it a for­mi­da­ble al­liance, which would pave the way for com­plete rout of the BJP in Ut­tar Pradesh.

Re­fer­ring to the al­liance, Te­jashwi had un­der­lined that the al­liance was first en­vis­aged by his fa­ther RJD chief Lalu Prasad, after the re­gional par­ties in Bi­har and UP had suf­fered elec­toral set­back in 2014 polls due to var­i­ous fac­tors in­clud­ing Modi’s pop­u­lar­ity.
