BSP supremo Mayawati has not taken the news of its six MLAs jumping ship to join the Congress Party in Rajasthan.
Mayawati called the defection of BSP MLAs 'a betrayal with the party which was extending outside support to Cong govt in Rajasthan'.
'Cong proves yet again it is an unreliable party', Mayawati said. The MLAs who left BSP are Rajendra Guda, Jogendra Avana, Wajib Ali, Lakhan Singh Meena, Sandeep Yadav and Deepchand Kheriya.

With this merger, the Congress now has 106 seats in the 200-seat Assembly.
