TNI Bureau: A beleaguered Congress Party reached out to the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ahead of the Winter Session of the Parliament, which holds much importance to the government in terms of issues related to FDI in Retail, Coalgate and many others.
After holding a dinner for Samajwadi Party on Friday, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh organised a lunch for BSP supremo Mayawati on Sunday. After the lunch, Mayawati reiterated her support to the UPA Government at the Centre.
It is well known that neither the Samajwadi Party nor the BSP function on any ideology. Their main aim is to make profit and at the same time keep the BJP away from power. And, the Congress knows it better how to keep them under its knees.
On Friday, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav got the opportunity to have dinner with the PM at his residence. On Sunday, it wad the turn of Mayawati and Satish Mishra to taste the delicacy at the 7, Race Course Road. Hopefully, these parties would oblige to the Congress when there is a need.
