BSP Chief Mayawati expels 5 MLAs from party; backs BJP in MLC elections

BSP Chief Mayawati has expelled 5 rebel MLAs from her party just a day after they created a revolt in the party and she has now declared support for the BJP in legislative council elections. Mayawati has also taken strict action against the 5 rebel MLAs and is now backing the BJP in MLC elections. Will this bring a new alliance with BJP is something which is yet to be seen.

The BSP was actually colluding with the BJP, which is the ruling party in the state and that was why the MLAs were opposing the BSP chief. Furthermore, these MLAs were continuously in talks with the Samajwadi Party and other parties as well.
