A day after senior BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya, the Leader of Opposition in the UP assembly, resigned from the party, BSP chief Mayawati called a meeting of all party MLAs in Lucknow on Saturday with an objective to avoid any further defections.

She is expected to take a decision on nominating a new Leader of Opposition in the Assembly after Maurya turned rebel and accused her of “auctioning” party tickets and “deceiving” Dalits.
