Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati addressed four rallies this week, days before the national elections are to start on April 11. But none of the rallies by the four-time Uttar Pradesh chief minister were organised in the crucial state that has 80 Lok Sabha seats. Her party is contesting the elections in an alliance with Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party against the BJP, a tough opponent. Instead, Mayawati has spent the last week addressing rallies in Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra. More rallies are scheduled in Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. BSP sources say this is Mayawati's pitch for a larger role after the elections, possibly to be a more agreeable person among contenders even for the top job.
