Lucknow, Dec 6 (ANI): Attacking opposition parties for targeting the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Tuesday said such attacks would only work to her advantage in next year's assembly elections.
Addressing a huge rally here on the occasion of 56th death anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, Mayawati said opposition parties were constantly attacking her party and its leaders because they have no other issue to talk about.
