Dehra Dun: BSP, which holds key to government formation in Uttarakhand, on Wednesday said it would take a decision on the issue of support only after consultation with its supremo Mayawati.

The 3-MLA strong BSP said both Congress and BJP leaders were in touch with the party.

Congress got 32 seats and BJP 31 in the 70-member state Assembly -- both falling short of the magic figure of 36.

State BSP chief Surajmal said, "Whatever direction comes from Mayawatiji, we will follow."

He said leaders from both Congress and BJP were seeking BSP's support to form the government.

At a press conference in Lucknow, Mayawati told a questioner that she was yet to think on her party's stand in Uttarakhand.
