Mayawati has asked the media to ban pre-poll polls six months before the election.

Mayawati’s comments came a day after a news channel showed in a poll that the BJP would win more seats in UP in the upcoming 2022 assembly elections and retain power.

Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati on Saturday said she would write a letter to the Election Commission seeking a six-month ban on polls by media outlets and other organizations.

Addressing the 15th memorial day of BSP founder Kanshi Ram at the Kanshi Ram Memorial, Mayawati said the Bharat Ratna should be given to the late Dalit leader and that the people of Uttar Pradesh were determined to shift their power.

“Soon, a letter will be written to the Electoral Commission stating that business attire, media outlets and other companies are banned six months before the elections so that elections in that particular state are not affected,” he said.

“When the assembly elections were going on in West Bengal, the polls showed that Mamata Banerjee was lagging behind, but when the results came out, those who dreamed of gaining power, their dreams were shattered. And Mamata (Banerjee) returned with a large majority. You must not be misled, ”the BSP leader told the public.

Mayawati’s comments came a day after a news channel showed in a poll that the BJP would win more seats in UP in the upcoming 2022 assembly elections and retain power.

He said the BJP-led central and UP governments were using state machinery to create favourable conditions for themselves.

“When these tactics do not work, everyone knows that the party (BJP) will eventually give the election a Hindu-Muslim colour and try to take full political advantage in its guise. Elections must be fought with this in mind,” she said.

Without naming any party, he said, “There are small parties and organizations that can contest elections alone or collectively. Their job is not to win elections, but to favor the ruling party behind the scenes. It is in their own interest. Therefore, the people of these castes and communities are influenced by these parties and organizations.” Don’t come down. “

Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) leader Om Prakash Rajpar said last month that Beam Army chief Chandrasekhar Azad would be part of the Bhagti Sankalp Morcha, a formal announcement to this effect would be made at a rally on October 27.

The Morcha is the front of like-minded political parties led by former BJP ally Rajpur.

AIMIM had recently announced that it would join hands with the Rajpar-led SBSP and its ally Sankalp Morcha to contest 100 seats in the state assembly elections next year.
