With the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections inching nearer, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday snubbed both the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bhaujan Samaj Party (BSP), by saying they are confused and preoccupied political outfits that will facilitate and brighten the government formation chances of the saffron party.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told ANI that the ruling SP is ushering criminals into the party, while the BSP is losing its leaders over allegations of assembly tickets being auctioned by party president Mayawati.
“As far as the politics of Uttar Pradesh is concerned, we have seen as to how Mr. Maurya has left the BSP, and in fact, he has made certain very strong allegations against Mayawati, regarding the selling of tickets in the BSP.This confusion that is seen in the BSP and the SP is quite evident,” said Patra.
“The Samajwadi Party is ushering in criminals into their party and here people are in fact leaving the BSP. This shows that there is some kind of confusion in both the parties and this points the fingers towards the BJP which will form the government in the coming elections in UP as it is singularly focused on the development of UP,” he added.
BSP heavy weight Swami Prasad Maurya quit the party yesterday and accused party supremo Mayawati of auctioning tickets.
Addressing a press conference here, Maurya said it is a do or die situation for the party in 2017 when the state goes to polls.
“Instead of selecting good candidates who are loyal to the policies of the party, Mayawati is auctioning tickets to the highest bidder,” he added.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday sacked senior minister Balram Yadav for engineering the merger of the political party headed by a mafia don despite his stiff opposition to the idea.
However, no official reason has been given regarding his sacking from the Uttar Pradesh Cabinet.
