Bahujan Samaj Party will not field a candidate against Congress President Sonia Gandhi when she seeks re-election from Rae Bareli, BSP chief Mayawati said Friday.
Addressing a party workers meeting here, Mayawati, however, said this should not mean that there would be some kind of electoral understanding between the BSP and Congress. Gandhi, who resigned from Lok Sabha on March 23 in the wake of office-of-profit controversy, had announced that she would contest again from Rae Bareli constituency in Uttar Pradesh when the by-election would be held.
