Mayawati takes back 1995 guest house case against Mulayam Singh Yadav

While addressing the joint press conference with Yadav, Mayawati had said she was ready to forgive and forget the infamous ‘guest house incident’.


Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati has withdrawn the infamous guest house case of 1995 against Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav that created an over-two-decade long rift between the two prominent regional parties.

The case was taken back in February this year according to sources after both the rival parties entered into an alliance ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. A recent source said that the decision by BSP supremo was taken as a goodwill gesture on the request of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav. However, it was not made public then.

When questioned on the withdrawal of the case, senior BSP and SP leaders refrained from making any comment on the issue.

The alliance between the parties was announced on January 12 this year, however, things didn’t work out as per expectations of both the parties and soon after the Lok Sabha results Mayawati had called off the tie-up.

Earlier this year while addressing her first-ever joint press conference with Yadav in Lucknow, the BSP chief Mayawati had said she was ready to forgive and forget the infamous ‘guest house incident’ of 1995 during which she was held hostage by SP workers at the state guest house.
