Ironically, Mayawati "promised" she won't bring family members to politics
In March, an unnamed BSP leader told The Telegraph that Mayawati "promised" she won't bring her family members into politics.
"She told us at meeting two months ago that Akash is an MBA from a private institute in London and was looking after her Twitter account. She told us not to talk about him in public," the leader said.
Well, in politics promises really don't mean anything.
Meanwhile, turncoat Danish Ali was made leader in Lok Sabha

Mayawati reshuffled party after rout in general elections
The changes in the party come exactly a month after BSP faced a humiliating defeat in Lok Sabha polls. Despite allying with its former foe SP, BSP failed to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi's juggernaut.
But the alliance somewhat worked for Mayawati as her party won 10 seats, after drawing a blank in 2014 elections.
