Lucknow, June 24 (TIWN) Three weeks after she called off the alliance with the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party President Mayawati has launched a tirade against SP President Akhilesh Yadav by calling him 'anti-Muslim.

Mayawati said that Akhilesh Yadav had asked her to not give tickets to Muslims as it would result in religious polarization.

"But I did not listen to him. When Akhilesh Yadav was the Chief Minister, injustice was done to non-Yadav and Dalits and that is why they did not give votes to the SP. The SP had protested against the promotion of the Dalits also," she said at a closed-door party meeting.

Mayawati's statements, incidentally, were not a part of the official press release issued at the end of the meeting but sources later confirmed what she had said.

Incidentally, three of the five MPs elected on a SP ticket are Muslims, namely, Mohd Azam Khan, Shafiqur-rehman Barq and S.T. Hasan.
