BSP to contest all 182 seats, releases first list of candidates

Releasing its first list of 50 candidates to be fielded in the December elections, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Friday announced that it would contest all 182 Assembly seats.

Addressing mediapersons, BSP leader from Uttar Pradesh and party's Gujarat in-charge Dharma Prakash Bharatiya said the second list would come out shortly.

BSP is the first party to have come out with the list of candidates for the polls. The party had polled 2.62 per cent votes in the 2007 elections.

Bharatiya said party supremo Mayawati would come to Gujarat to campaign for the candidates. He said all other political parties were neck-deep in corruption and the BSP, if it came to power, would give corruption-free governance in the state.

When pointed out that several BSP ministers and MLAs were sent to jail for their involvement in corrupt activities during Mayawati's rule, he said the BSP government had appointed Lokayukta and took action against the ministers whom Lokayukta found involved in corruption.
