BSP Chief Mayawati accused the BJP of playing caste politics. She said that the party backs up smaller parties drawn up on caste lines to divide votes.
Mayawati said that the Mahagathbandhan is one that will spear head social change.
She said that the alliance lost power because of the flawed policies of Congress.
Akhilesh Yadav said that the Mahagathbandhan will ensure the downtrodden get their due and are treated with dignity.
