Lucknow: Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati was Saturday unanimously re-elected Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president at the two-day national executive meeting of the party here. Amid thunderous applause by members of the executive, she was garlanded by senior party leaders Swamy Prasad Maurya and S.C. Mishra as her name was announced.
The executive soon after electing her, got down to deliberating on the party's position in various poll-bound states, specially Haryana and Maharashtra. The party has already announced that it will go it alone in the Maharashtra assembly polls and will not tie up with any other regional or national outfit.
The three-time UP chief minister soon after her re-election asked party leaders and workers to go out and expose the "corrupt and failed" government of the Samajwadi Party (SP) headed by Akhilesh Yadav. She also urged them to work hard so that the party wins back power in the state in the 2017 assembly polls.
