Setback for opposition as 3 MLCs

resign in Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow - The opposition in Uttar Pradesh suffered a setback with three MLCs putting in their papers almost coinciding with BJP national president Amit Shah’s three-day visit to Lucknow.
While MLCs Bhukkal Nawab and Yashwant Singh are from the Samajwadi Party, Thakur Jaivir Singh represented the BSP. 
Another SP MLC Madhukar Jetli is also rumoured to be quitting but till now he has not formally resigned.
While it has not been officially confirmed, all these MLCs are likely to join the BJP during Shah’s presence in the next three days.
Most importantly, the vacancy in the Upper House has solved the BJP’s problem of accommodating CM Yogi Adityanath and deputy CMs Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Singh before September 19, the expiry of six months of their terms in office.
It remains to be seen how the BJP proposes to make room for minister of state with independent charge Swatantra Dev Singh who is also not a member of either house of the state legislature.
The lone Muslim minister, Mohsin Raza, who is also not a member of either house is most likely on his way out after being found involved in a number of Waqf scams.
Bhukkal Nawab considered close to Akhilesh Yadav has been with the SP since 1992 and his term was to end in 2022.
However, his name has been embroiled in illegal construction on the Gomti river front in which a CBI probe has been ordered by the Yogi government.
Yashwant Singh, considered close to independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya, told reporters that he had been feeling alienated in the SP.
Meanwhile, SP national president Akhilesh Yadav has hit out at CM Yogi for “political corruption”.
He said that fearing to face the people the BJP government has indulged in such political corruption not only in UP but in Bihar and Gujarat as well.
Meanwhile, SP MLC Deepak Mishra in a press statement charged the BJP of forcing the SP MLCs to resign by threatening to implicate them in false cases of corruption and land encroachment.
