Mayawati quits as Uttar Pradesh CM

March 7, 2012 - Lucknow

Mayawati, who was rejected whole-heartedly by Uttar Pradesh in the elections, on Wednesday tendered her resignation to Governor BL Joshi.

Mayawati's BSP had won a majority in the 2007 elections (206 seats), sewing up a rainbow coalition of Dalits, upper castes and Muslims, but this time round, fared poorly and was reduced to 80 seats.

The BSP chief will address a press conference at her party office here today.
