  • Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is likely to become a member of the legislative council following the resignation of two Samajwadi party MLCs

Two Samajwadi Party (SP) and a BSP member of the Uttar Pradesh legislative council on Saturday resigned from the house to what the sources said "pave" the way for the BJP ministers, who were not member of either of the houses, to get elected to the council. All these leaders are likely to join BJP in the presence of Amit Shah.

The Rashtriya Shia Samaj founder Bukkal Nawab further said that some people may resign from the SP soon, sources said.

"I am feeling very suffocated since last one-year".

Shah is on a 110-day non-continuous tour across states, and UP holds special significance for the BJP ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, as it had won an unprecedented 71 of the total 80 seats in the 2014 polls.

Nawab was all praises for PM Narendra Modi and UP CM Aditya Nath Yogi as he went to meet the Vidhan Parishad chairman to put in his papers."PM Narendra Modi believes in "Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas" and BJP is doing a good job in UP as well under CM Yogi", he said, but remained non-committal on joining BJP.

Madhukar Jaitley, also a close aide of Mulayam, was a state minister level functionary in the SP government and was advisor to Akhilesh on externally aided projects, including Lucknow Metro.


Former chief minister and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav accused the BJP of being behind the resignations of his party MLCs.

While Vaghela came down heavily on Congress leadership Saturday for taking their MLAs from Gujarat to Bengaluru at a time when people in the State are suffering from floods, BJP's Gujarat incharge Bhupendra Yadav also echoed similar views. Singh called the Akhilesh's statement anti-national and pro-China.

Similarly, political circles are agog with speculations over Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma contesting for the Legislative Council seat vacated by another SP MLC Yashwant Singh. He said he would speak to Bukkal Nawab.

Talking about Nitish Kumar joining hands with the BJP in Bihar, Akhilesh Yadav mocked at Bihar CM and said,"People who spoke about DNA, now joined NDA".

Meanwhile, there are also reports coming in which claim that BSP MLC Thakur Jaiveer Singh has also resigned.
