Tejashwi meets Maya, greets her on UP coalition
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.
