Soon after the formal announcement of the BSP-SP alliance on Saturday, Tejashwi had welcomed the new combination calling it a formidable alliance, which would pave the way for complete rout of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh where the saffron party is in power.
Earlier on Saturday, making an announcement jointly with Akhilesh Yadav, Mayawati mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah.
“This press conference will rob the guru-chela of their sleep,” she said.
"I have full confidence that just as our alliance defeated the BJP in the Lok Sabha bypolls, we will crush the saffron party in the general elections," she said, referring to the BJP's defeat in Phulpur, Gorakhpur and Kairana parliamentary bypolls.
