UP politics on the boil: Why is Mayawati's BSP invisible?

The silence of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) as politics in Uttar Pradesh shifts from one big controversy to another without a break is intriguing. The Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government in the state is at its most vulnerable juncture at this point. #Uttar Pradesh #Mayawati #PoliticsDecoder #BSP #UP #UP Politics #Dalit voters
