Nagur, Feb 18: BSP supremo Mayawati on Sunday voiced her prime ministerial ambitions by asking party workers to ensure a "big victory" for it in the next Lok Sabha elections so that she can deliver the Independence Day speech from the Red Fort.




Trying to position herself for a national role, Mayawati also cautioned her party cadre against becoming a "saleable commodity"

"You must ensure a big victory for BSP in the next general elections so that I can deliver Independence Day speech as Prime Minister from the Red Fort," the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said addressing a state-level rally of party workers here. The Prime Minister traditionally delivers the Independence Day speech from the ramparts of Red Fort.

BSP mainly has a presence in UP which accounts for 80 Lok Sabha seats, roughly 15 per cent of the total seats at stake.
