"BSP is contesting the Delhi Assembly elections without forging an alliance with any party," read a press release from the party.

The former chief minister said that the recently implemented police commissionerate system in Noida and Lucknow is good but the state government doesn't have the will power to take action criminal elements.

Stressing that her party opposes the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), she said, "Once again, I appeal to the Central government to take back this divisive and unconstitutional law."

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister demanded that CM Gehlot be dismissed and replaced by a new dispensation, claiming that otherwise more women will lose their children.

Mayawati stated that like Uttar Pradesh, it would have been better if the general secretary would have met the mothers, who lost their children due to the negligence of the state government.

The BSP chief on Friday had said that her party does not believe in violence and destruction of public property.

Mayawati demanded the rollback of the newly-enacted citizenship law and said that its implementation would leave a negative impact on the society in the near future.

The statement from Mayawati comes in the wake of protests in several parts of the country over against the CAA, which was approved by Parliament in its recently concluded winter session and later given assent by the President.

Mayawati said: "Police in Uttar Pradesh and also in Delhi should take inspiration from Hyderabad Police, but unfortunately here criminals are treated like state guests, there is jungle raj in Uttar Pradesh right now. Hope the attitude changes for the better."

The JJP had contested the Lok Sabha polls in alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) where it had to suffer a humiliating defeat being unable to secure even a single seat. JJP will contest on 50 seats and BSP will contest on 40 seats.
