Top SP MLCs dedicate their seats to Yogi Adityanath, 'their' CM

Posted July 30, 2017

The three lawmakers - Yashwant Singh, Bukkal Nawab and Madhukar Jaitley - all are members of the Upper House of the state Assembly.

Nawab expressed his willingness to join the BJP, as per sources.

After submitting his resignation, Bukkal Nawab, who is also the founder of Rashtriya Shia Samaj, praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The timing of these resignations is curious, several reports said, as BJP chief Amit Shah reached Lucknow on Saturday morning for three days of meetings.

The BJP juggernaut is appearing to be unstoppable and after creating tremors in Bihar and Gujarat, the jolts are now being felt in Uttar Pradesh where 3 SP MLCs and one BSP MLC have quit their respective parties. Appreciating the work of Yogi Adityanath, Nawab said that he is doing a good job and at least there hasn't been any scam yet. He has said that he had been feeling "suffocated" since the last one year. Yashwant Singh, a close aide of Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya, formerly a minister in the previous SP government and a known Akhilesh-baiter, even declared that he was "vacating the seat for CM Yogi ji" and that he was upset with Akhilesh ever since he "called India weak and glorified China while speaking in the UP Assembly". "People are watching everything".

Phil Spencer also told fans that the Crackdown 3 will be presented with a "good demo" at the Gamescom next month. Xbox One S is the only console that offers 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and High Dynamic Range.

Former UP Chief Miniter Akhiesh Yadav has blamed the BJP for the resignation of party leaders. He said the BJP was scared of facing the electorate and was looking at safe options. If they invite, then I might go with BJP. "Those who have to go will go, they can not be stopped", he said.

Alleging a conspiracy, Akhilesh accused the BJP of indulging in political corruption from "Bihar to UP".

In a statement, BSP president Mayawati said the BJPs "greed for power has turned into lust for power".

Currently, five BJP ministers, including UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath and the two deputy chief ministers Dinesh Sharma and Keshav Prasad Maurya, were neither member of the Vidhan Sabha nor the council. With these resignations, SP's strength in the Council will now be reduced to 63.
