The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Sunday took on Bhim Army leader Chandrashekhar aka Ravana, saying she can "never have a relation with these sort of people".
Addressing the media, Mayawati said, "For the past few days, a man who was recently released from jail is trying to call me 'Bua'. I can never have a relation with these sort of people."
The Bhim Army chief, who spent 15 months in jail after his arrest under the National Security Act (NSA) for his alleged role in the violence in Shabbirpur village in Uttar Pradesh in May 2017, was freed on Friday.
He announced then that he had no differences with Mayawati, whom he considered a "bua".
BSP supremo also said that in order to stop the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from winning general polls 2019 she is ready to be a part of an alliance.
However, she cautioned that the BSP will enter into an alliance only if given a respectable share of seats.
Otherwise, will go for the polls alone, she said.
