UP Elections 2022:
Before the upcoming assembly elections, BJP has given a big blow to Samajwadi Party national president Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati. On Thursday, 10 MLCs of SP and BSP joined BJP.
It must be noted that a proposal was made before the joining committee to include many big leaders including MLAs and MLCs of SP and BSP in BJP. The committee approved the inclusion of ten MLCs including SP's Legislative Council members Ravi Shankar Singh Pappu, CP Chand, Akshay Prasad Singh, Rama Niranjan, Narendra Bhati, and BSP's Brajesh Kumar Singh Prinsoo in the BJP. After which all these MLCs reached the BJP headquarters and took membership of the party.
As per the reports, most of the council members who left the SP and joined the BJP are MLCs from the municipal area. Not only this, but BJP has also given in-principle consent to make these members candidates in the upcoming municipal area elections of the Legislative Council. It is being told that Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Dinesh Sharma and BJP Vice President Dayashankar Singh have played a big role in persuading and dragging the members of SP who are joining BJP.
Experts believe that if these members join BJP before the UP assembly elections, the SP will get a big setback. Whereas if we talk about BJP, then joining of these members in BJP will benefit in their area of influence.
As per the reports, BJP has also made preparations to include some sitting SP MLAs in the party. It is expected that in this month some other MLCs and MLAs will also join BJP. Significantly, before the election, the process of changing the party of the leaders is going on. Earlier, Akhilesh Yadav had got seven BSP MLAs and one BJP MLA to join the party.
