BSP MLA threatens ‘Karnataka like situation’ if Kamal Nath does not make her minister

BSP has already declared to go solo in the state and fight all seats in 2019 general elections. The BSP MLA says Congress should make both BSP MLAs ministers to avoid political turmoil.

BSP MLA Ramabai Ahirwar has stated that the Congress-led government in Madhya Pradesh will face a Karnataka-like situation if she is not given a ministerial post. According to reports, the Pathariya MLA has stated that she was promised a ministerial position when Congress and BSP agreed for a post-poll alliance to form the government in Madhya Pradesh.

As per reports, the BSP MLA has stated, “Mayawati had supported the Congress-led government, so we cannot go against that. But Congress has to think about the stability in such a situation. Their government is leaning on crutches, independent MLAs cannot be trusted. I do not want a Karnataka like situation here but we were promised ministerial berths which did not happen.”

She has also reportedly added that the people in her constituency want her to become a minister.
