Lucknow/New Delhi: BSP President Mayawati on Monday said her party will not attend the Congress-led opposition meeting to discuss a strategy on protests over the CAA and NRC, saying it will “demoralise” her party workers

In a series of tweets, the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister said her party is against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) but attending the meeting will demoralise BSP workers in Rajasthan, where the Congress has caused defections in her party.

However, she made it clear that the BSP is against the CAA and NRC

“As it is, the BSP is against CAA/ NRC etc. It is an appeal to the central government again that it should withdraw this divisive and unconstitutional law. Also, It is very unfortunate to politicize students in JNU and other educational institutions” she added.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is also likely to skip the meeting of opposition parties called by Congress. The AAP is not attending the meeting in view of the upcoming assembly polls in Delhi, they said.
