The bypolls in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur and Phulpur district were held after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and deputy CM Chief Minister Keshav Maurya vacated their seats. In order to defeat the BJP, Mayawati led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) decided to help each other to make sure that BJP doesn’t win in the by-elections. However, making it clear that BSP supporting the SP candidate in UP bypolls should not be looked as an alliance, party chief Mayawati said that all rumours about BSP and SP alliance in Uttar Pradesh for 2019 Lok Sabha elections were false and baseless. “Our party members will exercise their vote to defeat BJP candidate.”
