Accusing the Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party of indulging in corrupt practices, Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti on Wednesday expressed confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would form the next government in politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh.

She highlighted the BJP’s splendid performance in the recently held Assam assembly to back her assertion. “I have been saying this that the people haven’t forgotten the corrupt practices by the BSP and the Samajwadi Party.

So, there will be a complete removal of the BSP and the Samjawadi Party.

The clean sweep in Assam will be repeated in Uttar Pradesh,” Bharti told the media here.

Escalating her attack on Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party Government in Uttar Pradesh, Bharti said there is no safety and security for the people in Uttar Pradesh due to the deteriorating law and order situation.

“The Samajwadi Party has from the very beginning enjoyed the backing of criminals and inducted them into the party fold.

They have always progressed by indulging in politics of racism, but we will end them with the politics of nationalism,” she added.

Reacting on former Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Swami Prasad Maurya’s accusation that party supremo Mayawati auctions tickets, Bharti said it was nothing new, but a well-known fact.

“People like Swami Prasad Maurya are leaving the party due to these corrupt practices. We will do a clean sweep of politics of corruption,” she added. Maurya earlier today left the party and accused Mayawati of auctioning tickets.

“Instead of selecting good candidates, who are loyal to the policies of the party, Mayawati is auctioning tickets to the highest bidder,” he said.
