Akhilesh accuses BJP of 'political corruption' as SP MLCs quit

Two SP leaders quit party praise UP CM Yogi PM Modi. PTI file

Another SP MLC, Madhukar Jetley, was also said to have resigned after meeting Shivpal Yadav. He was sent to Vidhan Parishad in 2012 and then again in 2016.

According to reports emanating from Lucknow, there is a possibility of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister contesting for the Legislative Council seat vacated by Bukkal Nawab as he needs to acquire the membership of either houses of UP Assembly within six months of his taking over as state Chief Minister.

Over and above this, the BJP has also set its eyes on SP heavyweights - Shivpal Yadav and Ramgopal Yadav.

Bukkal Nawab was very close to former party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and owed his prominence to him until he made a decision to side with Akhilesh in the turf war within the party earlier this year.

"Akhilesh still has the opportunity. Or else, dissension will rise in the party", Shivpal Yadav told the media in Lucknow. He later left for Delhi to meet Mulayam.

Shivpal Yadav, who had earlier indicated that he would float a new political outfit has no intention of joining or merging his proposed outfit with BJP. There are indications that more legislators from SP and BSP are likely to quit in the coming days.

There is also a report that both Bukkal Nawab, Yashwant Singh and Thakur Jaiveer Singh could join the BJP in the presence of Mr Shah later in the day.

As for Akhilesh Yadav's other uncle, Ram Gopal Yadav, there were murmrus that he too could be coysing upto the BJP. Singh called the Akhilesh's statement anti-national and pro-China.

The Opposition leaders seemed to be in a total state of confusion following the sudden exodus of their legislators and leaders.

Taken by surprise, the SP, the BSP and the Congress blamed the ruling BJP for their move.

The recent developments in Gujarat and the resignations of the MLCs in UP proved that the Modi government has put the future of democracy at risk, she said, adding that instead of bowing before the BJP, the three MLCs should have faced the official terror and harassment as that was the only way to counter such forces. "He will also interact with various district presidents and district in-charges", UP BJP spokesperson Chandramohan said on Thursday.
