SP leader elated over UP minister quitting Yogi govt

Lucknow, Jan 11 (PTI) With UP Cabinet minister Swami Prasad Maurya quitting the Yogi Adityanath government and two BJP MLAs following him, Samajwadi Party spokesperson I P Singh on Tuesday said he has sent a few locks to the state BJP chief to help him down his party’s headquarters’ shutter after the poll result is out on March 10.

Singh, who had joined the SP after quitting the BJP in 2019, said he has sent some locks to UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh and two other party leaders so that they can go home after locking their offices in the BJP headquarters after the UP assembly poll result is out on March 10.

“I have sent a lock to the (UP) BJP headquarters as a gift to Swatantra Dev Singh. Return home after March 10. Now, there is no wave but a storm of the SP blowing (in the state),” the SP leader said in a tweet in Hindi.

In another tweet, he said, “There are three locks with this lock which can be used by Swatantra Dev Singh, Sunil Bansal, BJP general secretary (organisation) and Yogi (Adityanath) ji to be used by them according to their convenience,” I P Singh said in another tweet.

In a jolt to the BJP in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday, OBC leader Swami Prasad Maurya, who held the portfolio of Labour, Employment and Coordination ministry in the UP government, resigned from the state Cabinet with two other MLAs to following him.

Maurya, who is expected to join the Samajwadi Party, said he resigned from the Yogi Adityanath Cabinet “due to the attitude of gross neglect” towards Dalits, backwards, farmers, unemployed youths and small traders.

BJP Tindwari MLA Brajesh Prajapati and Tilhar MLA Roshan Lal Varma too have announced that they are leaving the party in support of Maurya.

Singh appeared elated over some important state leaders either joining the Samajwadi Party or forging pre-poll alliance with it.

“Omprakash Rajbhar ji, Jayant Chaudhary ji, Rajmata Krishna Patel ji, Sanjay Chauhan ji and now Swami Prasad Maurya ji are with Samajwadi Party,” he said, expressing delight over the development in the rival BJP camp.

I P Singh added on Twitter that he has placed an order for many more locks for the BJP leaders to help them close their offices after March 10 when he said the SP will get a landslide victory in the election. PTI NAV RAX RAX
