In an unexpected move, Bahujan Samaj Party President Mayawati has decided to withdraw her case against Samajwadi leader Mulayam Singh in the infamous state guest house incident of 1995. BSP national general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra confirmed. In which it is said that his party chief had given an application in the Supreme Court to withdraw the case, but he did not give any details.
Samajwadi Party's chief spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said that I am not yet aware of it. We will know about it and only then we will say something about it. Another BSP leader said that the matter is still pending in the Supreme Court. According to sources, Mayawati told a meeting of party workers on Thursday that Akhilesh Yadav had requested her to withdraw the 24-year-old case against her father in the Lok Sabha elections.
He said that he has asked the party's Rajya Sabha MP Satish Mishra to look into the matter. The state guest house incident took place on 2 June 1995 when the SP-BSP coalition government was in Uttar Pradesh. Mayawati was addressing a meeting of the BSP MLA on the issue of continuing support to the then Mulayam Singh government. Socialist leaders attacked the state guest house and Mayawati and the BSP MLAs locked themselves in a room to avoid them. After staying for several hours, he was rescued by BJP leaders and then the then Mulayam Singh government fell. After which Mayawati formed a government with the BJP and she became the Chief Minister.
A case was registered at a police station in Lucknow, in which Mayawati claimed that the incident was designed to kill me. Many prominent SP leaders of that time were also accused in the case. This incident changed the political equations in Uttar Pradesh and by 2019 SP and BSP became enemies. When Akhilesh Yadav formed an alliance with Mayawati, he made it clear that Akhilesh Yadav was not in politics at the time of the 1995 incident. However, the alliance did not last and soon after the Lok Sabha elections, Mayawati broke the alliance with the SP.
