BSP supremo Mayawati releases names of candidates for 51 of the 55 seats going to the polls during the second phase of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
“This time, we’ve given the slogan ‘Har Polling Booth Ko Jeetana hai, BSP Ko Satta Mein Lana Hai’. I hope our party workers will work hard and help BSP form the next government,” she added.
Last week, on her 66th birthday on January 15, Mayawati had released the first list of 53 candidates for the first phase of polls. The polling in the first phase will be held in 58 constituencies on February 10.
Addressing a press conference on the occasion, she had asked party workers to give her a birthday gift by making BSP government in the state.
Days later, the party announced changes on two seats in Agra district.
