After welcoming flood of BJP defectors, Akhilesh Yadav says no room for any BJP MLA, minister in Samajwadi Party

Apart from SP Maurya and Dara Singh Chauhan, 5 BJP MLAs - Roshan Lal Verma, Brijesh Prajapati, Mukesh Verma, Vinay Shakya, and Bhagwati Sagar - also joined the Samajwadi Party on Friday. Chaudhary Amar Singh of the Apna Dal, a BJP ally also left its party and joined the Samajwadi Party.

A day after welcoming a flood of BJP defectors including two ministers Swami Prasad Maurya and Dara Singh Chauhan, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said that there is no room for any BJP MLA, minister in the Samajwadi Party.

Speaking to the reporters in Lucknow, Yadav said he will not take any BJP MLA or minister anymore in the SP. The BJP can deny tickets to their leaders if they wish to, he also told the reporters. The party sacrificed a lot to bring people together but now there is no scope to take anyone else, he said.

Yadav’s statement came hours after Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad said seat-sharing talks between his Azad Samaj Party and the Samajwadi Party had broken down.

On Friday, Yadav inducted two BJP ministers Swami Prasad Maurya and Dara Singh Chauhan, 5 BJP MLAs, and one of its ally Apna Dal MLA ahead of next month’s assembly elections in the crucially important poll pound state of Uttar Pradesh.

Apart from these defectors, Dharam Singh Saini had also resigned from BJP on Friday but he has not joined the SP yet. However, several reports claimed that he will join SP soon.

Dozens of BJP leaders mostly from OBC backgrounds have walked out of the BJP in the last 72 hours that has been widely seen as having blown a big hole in the party’s re-election bid.

Apart from SP Maurya and Dara Singh Chauhan, 5 BJP MLAs – Roshan Lal Verma, Brijesh Prajapati, Mukesh Verma, Vinay Shakya, and Bhagwati Sagar – also joined the Samajwadi Party on Friday. Chaudhary Amar Singh of the Apna Dal, a BJP ally also left its party and joined the Samajwadi Party.
