"The agencies like Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate belong to them but it can not deter me from scripting a strategy against the Bharatiya Janata", she said making it amply clear that her party will carry on with the political understanding with Akhilesh-led Samajwadi Party in the future. On the guesthouse incident, she said, "I want to ask that by giving the highest police post to the officer responsible for the guest house case, is the BJP not out to get me murdered so as to end the BSP movement for always". She said that BJP used state machinery and unleashed fear and intimidation to get some MLA's to cross vote.

Despite of defeat of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate in Rajya Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh, party supremo Mayawati here said that Samajwadi Party and BSP alliance will be even stronger. "They even established an atmosphere of terror", she said. A day after her party candidate lost to the BJP in an intense contest in Uttar Pradesh despite backing from the SP, the BSP supremo said the ruling party, which secured the win through "undemocratic" and "unconstitutional" means, is expecting that she will break off ties with the SP and "it (BJP) will have a field day in 2019", but she will not let it happen. She also questioned the state government's role in preventing one SP and one BSP MLA lodged in jail from casting their vote.

"I would like to tell BJP and company that their malpractices will not succeed in breaking the ties between SP and BSP".
