After Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav targeted Bahujan Samaj Party for putting up elephant statues in Lucknow and Noida, BSP’s chief Mayawati taking a jibe on it said,”I thank Samajwadi Party chief for giving free publicity to our poll symbol by talking about ‘haathi’ repeatedly at their manifesto launch.

She also added that under Samajwadi government it is crime that is more talked about than the work done. The party never dared to send miscreants and culprits behind the bars as it would end their party completley, she added

Earlier, Mayawati has asked Muslims to not waste their vote on SP and that they should rather vote for Bahujan Samaj Party so that both BJP and Sp can be defeated in the upcoming elections.

Akhilesh while releasing the party manifesto, not taking the name, took a dig at BSP “that there will be larger statues of elephant in Lucknow and Noida if they come to power”.
