BSP says to continue support to UPA government
NEW DELHI |
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will continue to support the Congress party-led government, party chief Mayawati said, after the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) withdrew from the ruling coalition in protest against the government's position on a U.N. resolution on Sri Lanka.
