Lucknow: An elated Samajwadi Party on Thursday said that the assembly election results of Maharashtra have proved that the party still enjoyed the support of minorities and secular people.

Samajwadi Party spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary here said that the victory of four party candidates in Maharashtra has exposed the reality that SP has not lost ground among the minorities and secular minded people.

Expressing happiness over the defeat of BJP-Shiv Sena combine and BSP failing to open its account, Chaudhary said that it was now clear that people were in no mood to accept casteist and communal parties.

"Though UP Chief Minister misused public funds in assembly elections in other states and also tried to whip up passions it failed to find favour with the electorate there," Chaudhary said adding that the voters have realised that the Chief Minister, who has failed on all fronts in UP cannot be of much help elsewhere.

The SP spokesman said that even the dalit electorate is today surprised at the "five star lifestyle of the dalit ki beti", who has only concentrated on erecting statues and building parks during her tenure.

People of other states do not want to see the dismal state of affairs prevailing in UP in their states, Chaudhary said adding that they have given their verdict that a leader, who cannot run one state properly lacks the capability to become the leader of the entire country.
