Mayawati may contest from Ambedkarnagar, starts preparations for next year Lok Sabha polls


New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati has started preparing for the Lok Sabha election next year and she may contest from Uttar Pradesh’s Ambedkarnagar.

If she does contest the elections, it will mark a tactical shift from her earlier policy of not contesting polls herself in order to focus on the party organisation.

“The 2019 Lok Sabha election is crucial for the BSP to revitalise the party cadres, who are demoralised after three successive defeats — 2012 assembly election, 2014 Lok Sabha poll and 2017 assembly election. The BSP chief is likely to lead the fight by contesting from Ambedkarnagar,” a BSP leader said.

Mayawati had represented the seat in Lok Sabha in 1998, 1999 and 2004.
