After Mamata, Mayawati to skip Oppn meetJanuary 13, 2020 09:12
Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati will not attend a meeting of opposition parties convened on Monday to discuss the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
Mayawati, furious with the Congress after all six MLAs of her party in Rajasthan joined the ruling Congress last September, cited the episode as her reason for not attending the opposition meet.
"In such a situation, the BSP's attendance in the opposition meeting led by the Congress, will demoralise the party workers in Rajasthan. Hence, the BSP will not attend this meeting," Mayawati tweeted in Hindi.
Earlier, West Bengal chief minister and Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee announced that she would not attend the opposition meeting.
