In a major setback to the Bahujan Samaj Party, six party MLAs in Rajasthan switched sides and joined the Congress, late on Monday.

Reacting to this, BSP chief Mayawati, on Tuesday, took to Twitter to vent her anger. In a series of tweets in Hindi, Mayawati said, “The Congress has always been against BR Ambedkar and his ideology. That is why Ambedkar had to resign as the country's first law minister. The Congress never honored him with a Bharat Ratna, which is sad and shameful.” “The Congress party in Rajasthan, by creating a split among the BSP MLAs, has once again proved that it is untrustworthy and a cheat," she added.

She further said, “The Congress, instead of fighting its bitter rivals, always harms the parties that support it."

The BSP’s Rajendra Guda, Jogendra Singh Awana, Wajib Ali, Lakhan Singh Meena, Sandeep Yadav and Deepchand Kheria have joined the Congress, taking its tally to 106 in the 200-member assembly. The move is significant just two months ahead of the civic election, which is due in November.

The MLAs, who had been in touch with chief minister Ashok Gehlot, met assembly speaker CP Joshi and submitted a letter informing him about their decision to join the Congress. With all six joining the Congress, they have bypassed the anti-defection law.
