The Bahujan Samaj Party on Wednesday expelled its national general secretary Nasimuddin Siddiqui for "anti-party activities" and "indiscipline", making serious allegations of financial wrongdoings against him.

Alleging that Mayawati had asked for Rs 50 crore from him, he said on Thursday: "I asked from where can I get this amount, to which, she asked me to sell my property".

When the party failed to win people demanded that their money be returned, Mishra said and "Siddiqui tried to dispose of his benami properties, but told everyone that he was doing so because the party is demanding money from him". Naseemuddin Siddiqui said he was thrown out of the party on false allegations. Siddiqui also claimed to have incriminating evidence against Mayawati and threatened to release them in the coming days.

One of the top leaders of BSP who had been a powerful minister in the erstwhile government of Ms Mayawati, Mr Siddiqui and his son Afzal were expelled yesterday. Besides, Mayawati appointed him zonal coordinator and president of the Muslim bhai-chara committee.Siddiqui's family members, including his brother, wife, brother-in-law and son, also became active in the party. "Whatever charges have been levelled against me, applies to her (Mayawati) and I can prove it", he said.

To a question about BJP leader Swati Singh against whom Siddiqui had raised derogatory slogans+ after her husband Daya Shankar Singh's adverse comments against Maywati, he said that his video clippings could be checked as he never said anything wrong against her. Siddiqui said he faced a threat to his life from Mayawati. "When I expressed my inability to pay the amount she asked me to sell all my property to raise the money", Siddiqui said adding that he still said yes although it was very hard to get even one-fourth of the amount due to demonetisation. When I sought Mayawati's permission to visit my daughter, she said, "The election is very tough".

She said, audio tapes which were produced, are not original but tampered and there is nothing new in it. "I want the receipt books back", says a voice resembling Mayawati's. When I explained that the Congress-SP alliance led to a split in votes, she disagreed.

The BSP had expelled the senior MLA and his son for alleged "anti-party" activities.

Naseemuddin alleged that all BSP MLAs had to pay Mayawati.

"After loss in Assembly elections, Mayawati ji called me and asked why Muslims did not vote the BSP".

The war of words gave the ruling BJP a chance to take potshots at the BSP chief, saying it was high time for Mayawati to quit politics. "I will expose it all to you", he said, according to India Today.
