- The BJP will fight till it is wiped out from UP.
- The RSS is like a coward.
- Maurya says BJP is playing their last game.
Swami Prasad Maurya said he had resigned from the BJP in protest of the BJP’s neglect of the Dalit backward classes and marginalized. The BJP is a snake that has swallowed the rights of dalits, the unemployed, farmers and others. The BJP is playing their last game. Maurya had said in an interview to NDTV that he would be the one to bring them down.
Soumya, a cabinet minister and an influential leader among the backward classes, has resigned from the BJP in the run-up to the Assembly elections. Soumya joined the BJP in 2016 following a dispute with Mayawati.
The BJP is taking a hard line against Maurya, who has quit the party. The BJP has alleged that Maurya left the party because his son Utkarsh was not given an assembly seat. Meanwhile, a court has issued an arrest warrant against Maurya for making a speech seven years ago. He was asked to appear in court on Wednesday but was issued a warrant when he failed to appear.
Swami Prasad Maurya had told the media yesterday that his resignation had caused a major earthquake in the UP BJP and that many leaders would resign from the UP BJP before the Assembly elections.
He said he had not yet resigned from the BJP or joined the Samajwadi Party. But he said he would reveal his new move next Friday. Despite repeated statements against the BJP, Swami Prasad has repeatedly made contradictory statements about joining the Samajwadi Party. He told NDTV that his resignation had caused an earthquake in the BJP and that more ministers and MLAs would resign in the coming days.
