BJP is facing one setback after another in Uttar Pradesh. On Thursday, another party MLA Mukesh Verma resigned. Mukesh Verma is the MLA from Shikohabad seat of Firozabad. There is talk that in the coming days some more MLAs may shun the BJP.
On the other hand, BJP is busy finalizing the tickets for the Uttar Pradesh elections in Delhi and there is also news of consensus on the seats to be given to allies.
‘Maurya is our leader’
Mukesh Verma, in his resignation letter sent to the BJP state president, has said that during the five-year tenure of the BJP government, no attention was given to the leaders and public representatives of the Dalits, backward and minority communities. Along with this, the farmers, unemployed and small traders were also grossly neglected. Verma has said that Swami Prasad Maurya is the voice of the people of the oppressed and oppressed class and he is our leader. MLA Verma said that he is with Swami Prasad Maurya.
BJP has suffered many major setbacks in the last 3 days. First cabinet minister Swami Prasad Maurya resigned. Many MLAs left the party in support of Maurya and on Wednesday, the cabinet minister Dara Singh Chauhan, who came from the OBC category, also said goodbye to the party. It is being said that some more MLAs can give a jolt to the party.
In the meeting of the top leaders of Uttar Pradesh BJP with the central leadership, it has been decided that Yogi Adityanath will be contested from Ayodhya seat. Earlier, there was a strong discussion of Yogi contesting from Mathura seat. But here the question also arises that why Yogi Adityanath is not contesting elections from his political workplace, Gorakhpur.
In the coming few days, BJP and SP will announce the names of their candidates and it is believed that many more leaders may switch sides. Because some leaders of SP have also caught the hand of BJP by changing sides. In such a situation, the election is expected to be very vigorous and exciting.
