Dehradun, Mar 12 (PTI) BSP today presented to the Uttarakhand Governor
a letter of support to a Congress-led government in the state and said
party chief Mayawati would decide on who will become minister in the
new dispensation. A day after announcing "unconditional support" to
the Congress, top leaders of the BSP including all the three party
MLAs went to Raj Bhavan to present the letter of support to Governor
Margaret Alva this evening. "We have presented letter of support to
the Governor for a stable government in Uttarakhand. Our support is
unconditional," BSP leader Meghraj Singh, incharge of party's affairs
in the hill state, told reporters at Raj Bhavan. Singh said the BSP
would like to share power with the Congress, and modalities regarding
the power-sharing would be decided by Mayawati. "She will decide
whether all the three MLAs should become ministers or none of them,"
he said. When asked whether the BSP had conveyed to the Congress its
choice of chief minister, Singh said it was an internal matter of the
Congress. "Whosoever become the chief minister, we will give our
unconditional support. We have given our support for a stable
government," he said. With BSP giving support, Congress will now have
support of 39 MLAs in the 70 member house with its own strength of 32.
Three independents and one legislator of Uttarakhand Kranti Dal have
already submitted their letters of support to the Governor.
