NEW DELHI: BSP chief Mayawati’s decision to go solo in the forthcoming assembly by-elections to 11 seats of Uttar Pradesh has come as surprise to many. Is a fear of the probe agencies dealing with her disproportionate assets case behind her decision? Or is she preparing the ground to emerge as a chief ministerial contender in the assembly elections in the state in 2022? She has clearly been the gainer in the SP-BSP-RLD alliance in the recent Lok Sabha election as her party moved from scoring a nought in 2014 to bagging ten seats this time.

Taking aim at the BJP, NCP President Sharad Pawar has said that politicians should not take voters for granted as even powerful leaders like Indira Gandhi and Atal Bihari Vajpayee had been defeated in elections. Criticising former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over his 'Mi punha yein' (I will come back) refrain during the last year's assembly polls, Pawar said voters thought this stance smacked of arrogance and felt that they should be taught a lesson. He also said that that there was not an "iota of truth" in reports about differences in the three ruling allies- Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress- that are part of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. The veteran leader said he was neither the headmaster nor the remote control of the MVA and made it clear that Thackeray and his ministers were running the government. The former Union minister said this in an interview by Shiv Sena leader and Executive Editor of party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
