Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party's efforts to contest the ruling BJP in the upcoming assembly elections are continuing. On Saturday, in the presence of former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, four former MLAs from different parties including Congress and 2 former MPs joined the Samajwadi Party. Including former minister Chaudhary Liaquat Ali, former MLAs Zameerullah, Sagir Ahmed and Saeed Ahmed. Former MPs Vijender Singh and Thakur Ranveer Singh are also among those who joined the SP. Former block chiefs Ram Dulare Bhargava and Abdul Rashid Khaw are also subscribing to the SP.
During this, Akhilesh Yadav said that I welcome all those who have joined the party. Taking a dig at the BJP, he said that no injustice has happened to farmers in this government till date. There will never be as many lathis on farmers as in the BJP government. The way the government is taking decisions, farmers are being wasted. This government had shown many dreams to the farmers but did not fulfill any.
Let me tell you that in the past in the BJP's main opposition party SP in Uttar Pradesh, many leaders took the membership of the SP. In which many leaders of Congress, BSP were involved.
