[ZESTCaste] People feeling oppressed by Mayawati's rule: Ajit Singh

People feeling oppressed by Mayawati's rule: Ajit Singh

Now they have clear-cut alternative in RLD-Congress combine, he says

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) chief Ajit Singh, who was sworn in as Union
Minister on Sunday, said his party's alliance with the Congress would
give a "clear-cut alternative" to the people of Uttar Pradesh in the
coming Assembly elections.

Accusing Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati of running an
"oppressive rule" in the State, Mr. Singh said: "Our mind now is on
Uttar Pradesh. The people of U.P. are feeling oppressed by the
Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party government… but now they have a
clear-cut alternative in the RLD-Congress combine."

Talking to journalists after his swearing-in at the Rashtrapati
Bhavan, the Jat leader claimed that the RLD-Congress alliance had
generated a "wave" in Uttar Pradesh and its repercussions would be
felt across the country, particularly in the northern States. "The
[political] wave that will begin from Uttar Pradesh will have a
lasting effect on the whole country."

As a result of its alliance with the Congress for the U.P. polls, the
RLD, which has considerable influence in the western districts (also
known as the sugarcane belt), is likely to contest 40-50 of the total
403 seats. The party now has only 10 MLAs, while it won five Lok Sabha
seats in 2009 when it contested the elections under the BJP-led
National Democratic Alliance.
