Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh polls 2017, apart from words being exchanged, MLAs too are moving from one party to another. While three congress leaders and one from Samajwadi party moved to Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Wednesday, eight MLAs from different parties have joined BJP today. Three of the newly inducted in BJP belong to SP, the other three were formerly with Congress and two have walked out from BSP. On a similar note, the induction in BSP was informed by leader Naseemuddin, saying that three Congress leaders and one from SP had joined BSP unconditionally showing confidence in the party’s strategy and planning.
Previously, BSP stalwart Swami Prasad Maurya left the party to BJP. While leaving he said that party chief Maywati has been selling tickets ahead of the UP elections. Maurya added that although she talks for the development of the backward, only 26 or 27 seats out of the 403 are occupied by backward candidates. Maurya on joining BJP said, that he was impressed by PM Narendra Modi’s work for the impoverished and needy while his former party has turned into an “industrial house” for selling tickets.
