BSP supremo Mayawati is expected to spell out her party's views on the political situation and the tie-up with Samajwadi party on her 63rd birthday Tuesday which the party workers look to make it a grand event.
Massive preparations are underway to celebrate the occasion in the state capital, with big hoardings and blue (party colour) banners being erected near the streets and around the party headquarters and her house here.
Ever since her visit to Lucknow last week, the BSP chief has been busy holding meetings with party workers and leaders to take stock of ground realities and the party's preparation for the coming elections.
"Behenji (as Mayawati is called) has directed party workers to strengthen their presence across all booths and ensure that people from all castes and social strata are connected with the party. She also took a feedback on the work done in her absence," a party leader said.
She has asked the party cadres to be wary of the designs of the ruling BJP to harm the interests of the SP-BSP alliance, the leader said.
Though no formal invitation to other party leaders has been extended, party sources said BSP's coalition partners from other states may arrive in the national capital to wish Mayawati.
"Behenji usually spends her birthday with party workers and supporters who celebrate the day as 'jan kalyankari diwas' by extending a hand of support to the needy and downtrodden," he added.
