New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Wednesday said that her party will support the Congress in Madhya Pradesh. 

“Even though we don't agree with many of Congress's policies we have agreed to support them in Madhya Pradesh and if need be in Rajasthan,” Mayawati said.

Mayawati said results show that people in states like Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh were totally against the BJP and its anti-people policies and as a result chose Congress due to lack of other major alternatives.

"The voters chose Congress with a heavy heart because they did not have a strong alternative," she said.

Mayawati said that the BSP is the only party that fights for the poor and the Dalits but they failed to get a sufficient number of seats.

Earlier in October, the BSP supremo had said that she will not form any alliance with Rahul Gandhi “under any circumstances”.

The BSP has won two seats in the 230-seat Madhya Pradesh assembly, in which the Congress has emerged the largest party but is two short of the majority mark of 116. The BJP is not far behind, with 109 seats.
