Lucknow, Mar 12: Amid widespread speculation of Mayawati entering the Rajya Sabha, the BSP chief today held a meeting of party leaders to discuss the coming biennial polls to the Upper House.
The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister held a meeting with party MPs, MLAs and office-bearers and discussed the Rajya Sabha elections.
She gave necessary directions to them, party leaders said. Speculation is rife about Mayawati entering the Rajya Sabha from the state. Besides the BSP chief, the party will send another member to the Rajya Sabha, the name of which is yet to be decided, the party leaders said.
At the meeting, Mayawati also took feedback from her party leaders on the just-concluded assembly election in the state. She asked them to brace themselves for future challenges like playing the role of the main Opposition in the state and facing the next Lok Sabha election. Mayawati has been holding meeting of her party leaders for the past three days following BSP's dismal performance in the state assembly election.
