On Siddiqui's charge that BSP general secretary Satish Mishra was trying to weaken the party, Mayawati said there was no comparison between the two.
He became a minister in 1995 when Mayawati formed her first government with BJP support.He was appointed minister in the BSP governments in 1997 and 2002 as well.In the 2007 assembly election, the BSP formed a majority government and Siddiqui became the second most powerful leader in the government with 10 departments under him.The fact that some party leaders called him mini CM was a reflection of his clout.
However, the crushing defeat in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections changed the equations between the duo. She said, Siddiqui's allegations are baseless and false. According to The Indian Express, 57-year-old Naseemuddin had made a foray into politics in 1988 as an independent, contesting and losing in the election for Banda Municipal Board. On Wednesday, BSP had expelled Siddiqui, its most prominent Muslim face, and his son from the party for carrying out "anti-party" activities. He also alleged that all BSP MLAs had to pay Mayawati and even his wife, who was a BSP MLC, had given money to her. Naseemuddin joined BSP at a time when the party was finding it hard to bring even a single Muslim to its meetings, according to the former MP.
"An upset Mayawati called the Muslim community "gaddar" (traitors)", the former Minister said. Siddiqui's stature increased after Mayawati expelled them from the party.He was under the lokayukta's scanner on the charge of having assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. When BSP failed to win any seat in 2014, Naseemuddin was given charge of BSP's western UP and Lucknow divisions, while his son was the in-charge of the party's "Muslim Bhaichara" campaign in western UP.

In one of the audio tapes, a person, who Siddiqui claimed was Mayawati, is heard asking him to collect money from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly candidates who fought elections on a BSP ticket.
Everyone can progress in life, Mayawati said. "It was out of compulsion that I had to bring him", she said. "I have so much material [against Mayawati] that if I open my mouth, it can cause an earthquake.If I present proof against Mayawati, [her brother] Anand and [BSP General Secretary Satish Chandra] Mishra, it will be a big tamasha (drama)", he said. Siddiqui himself did not give details but from the conversation it was clear that he was avoiding going to meet Mayawati alone even as she was insistent.
On Thursday, Naseemuddin accused Mayawati of calling all Muslims "traitors".
