Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Wednesday announced that her party won't have an alliance with Congress and will fight assembly elections in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh alone.

Attacking on Congress, Mayawati revealed that Congress party was trying to crush the BSP and some party leaders don't want the alliance. She also questioned the Congress's intentions of defeating the BJP.   

BSP Supremo Mayawati also said leaders like Digvijaya Singh do not wish for a Congress- BSP alliance as they are afraid of investigating agencies like ED and CBI.

Speaking to media, Mayawati said, "Congress leaders like Digvijaya Singh do not wish for a Congress-BSP alliance. They are afraid of agencies like ED, CBI."

"Digvijaya Singh, who is also a BJP agent, is giving statements that Mayawati has a lot of pressure from Centre so she doesn’t want this alliance. This is baseless," Mayawati said.

"I feel that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's intentions for Congress-BSP alliance are honest. However, some Congress leaders are sabotaging this," BSP chief said.

BSP chief also added, ''They (Congress) are getting arrogant and are under the misconception that they can defeat BJP on their own but the ground reality is that people haven't forgiven Congress party for their mistakes and corruption. They don't seem to be ready to rectify themselves."

"In Karnataka, we tied up with a regional party. In Chhattisgarh too, we did the same. Now, we have decided to go alone in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. We may go with regional parties there but certainly not with the Congress," Mayawati said.
