Meet to discuss law and order, not Bihar poll results: Mayawati

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday said relating the routine meeting called by her to review the law and order situation of the state, with the results of the recently concluded Bihar Assembly elections, was mere propaganda launched by the opposition parties.

"It's the opposition parties propaganda to relate law and order review meeting called by me on November 27 with Bihar polls. This is not true," Mayawati told reporters here.

BSP, which had won four seats in the last elections, failed to win a single seat in Bihar this time.

Mayawati said that BJP-JD(U) return in Bihar was not due to development but due to "faulty strategy" of Lalu Prasad Yadav and Ram Vilas Paswan.

Mayawati alleged that not much development and public interest works were done in Bihar by Nitish Kumar government and relating his victory with development was not fair.

"It is not fair to say that the BJP-JD(U) alliance got vote on the basis of issues and not castes and other factors," she said.

Mayawati said that the "15 year misrule" of Lalu was also a factor that created a wave in favour Nitish which also affected BSP at adversely in the polls.
