Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati slammed the saffron party on the BJP's BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as Karnataka CM by saying that ruling party is misusing government's machinery since they came to power.

"I want to advise the Congress Party that it should not use language that will benefit the BJP and RSS in any political rally in any election in the future", she said.

Singling out Congress president Rahul Gandhi's bitter verbal attack on the JD (S) during the campaign phase, Mayawati stated, "It is now apparent how they (Congress) in election speeches dubbed the JD (S) as the B-team of BJP, particularly in regions with significant Muslim population, (thereby) causing division in votes. BJP could not have reached (the stage where it has) 104 MLAs had the Congress not indulged in this kind of rhetoric".

The Nigerian billionaire is expected in the country this Thursday (May 17) for an emergency meeting with the factory's management. "One step forward to Ethiopia ", the country's foreign affairs spokesman, Meles Alem, told The Associated Press .

"The BJP's irrational insistence that it will form a Govt in Karnataka, even though it clearly doesn't have the numbers, is to make a mockery of our Constitution", Gandhi tweeted.

Addressing the media here, Mayawati accused the BJP of misusing the government ever since they came to power at the Centre. Mayawati's BSP, an ally of the JD (S) in the southern state, won one seat. BSP insiders said that Mayawati asked her close aide and party Rajya Sabha MP Ashok Siddharth, who is also Karnataka BSP in charge, to meet Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad as soon as projections showed a hung assembly with no party in a position to form government on its own.

Mayawati called up HD Devegowda and convinced him to take the support from the Congress.
