Apr 07, 2019 11:17 PM IST India India

At the first joint campaign rally of the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, BSP chief Mayawati made an open appeal to Muslims, asking them to vote for the alliance and not the Congress. The BSP supremo while addressing a rally in Deoband asked Muslim voters to not let their votes get split by siding with Congress. Mayawati also slammed the Congress for fielding up a Muslim candidate against the Muslim candidate put up by the Gathbandhan. The former chief minister's open wooing of Muslims is seen as giving a handle to the BJP to polarise the polls on religious lines.
