Lucknow: Hitting back at her rivals in the same language as they have been using against her, BSP chief Mayawati on Saturday ruled out any pre-poll or post-poll alliance with BJP or Congress or the Third Front taking shape on the initiative of the SP and the Left parties.

She said that the BSP is better positioned in comparison to rivals for the next Lok Sabha elections and expressed confidence that her party will win maximum seats in Uttar Pradesh and will be do better in other states in the country.

Reacting sharply to BJP's PM nominee Narendra Modi's accusation that the trio of the BSP, SP and Congress has spoiled UP, Mayawati said "The truth is that the infighting among the trio - Modi, LK Advani and Rajnath Singh - in the BJP will indirectly help the BSP. The trio is busy clipping wings of each other. People are watching everything and they will vote for the BSP."

She also said that huge crowd in Modi's rally is nothing but an assembly of ticket seekers. She said that the BJP is now talking about development and solutions, what was it doing when NDA government ruled the country for six years. She also clarified that BSP supported UPA only to keep communal forces out of power. "We have no other understanding with the Congress or any other party," she said.

On SP, she said that people of the state are fed up of Akhilesh Yadav's misgoverance. She was also critical about Congress's economic policies.

"BSP is the only good option for the people," she said. She also cornered the SP government stated that laptops and allowances can never help in bringing growth and development to the state. "If the current state of affairs continue to prevail, a day is not far when UP will be officially declared a backward state," she said.

Mayawati warned the people in UP to stay vigilant as different political parties were all out to flare up communal forces to polarize different sections of the society in the lust for votes. "With elections round the corner, such communal forces are sure to get aggressive, therefore I suggest that the people should stay alert and patient," she said.

Mayawati defended BSP on the recent controversy around Manyawar Kanshiram Smarak in Rakabganj area of Delhi. "We were given one bungalow for the Smarak but the place was too small for it. Therefore we asked the government of Delhi to allot the adjacent bungalow where I was living for the same. The third bungalow is the one which was allotted to me in place of the bungalow I gave for the Smarak. We have followed all rules and regulations in this process," she said adding that the controversy was raked up by some anti-Dalit journalists.
