New Delhi: Swami Prasad Maurya, former chief of the Bharatiya Janata Get together and a minister in CM Yogi Adityanath’s cupboard in Uttar Pradesh, swapped sides simply days forward of the essential meeting elections 2022 within the state. The incident triggered an exodus of seven BJP leaders, common among the many backward class, in a serious jolt to the saffron occasion.
With only a few weeks left to the polls, these exits are being seen as an important growth in Uttar Pradesh politics and an try to create a so-called ‘Akhilesh Yadav wave’ within the run-up to the meeting elections.
Zee Information Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary, in his prime time present DNA aired on Thursday (January 13, 2022) sought to decode the elements behind the sudden exits from the BJP and its most definitely affect on the upcoming meeting elections and the voters of Uttar Pradesh.
Calling it a ”consequence of social engineering” and drawing an analogy between the outgoing BJP ministers and the ”migratory birds”, Chaudhary famous that a lot of the leaders who left the saffron occasion weren’t prone to get tickets for the subsequent time period and thus, switched sides within the hope of contesting elections from the opposite occasion.
Another excuse behind this exit was the notorious M+Y issue, which interprets to Muslim+ Yadav vote financial institution. This pattern has been prevalent in Uttar Pradesh politics for a very long time now and this time as properly a good portion of the 18% Muslim and 10% Yadav vote financial institution appears set to battle in favour of the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Get together.
Thus, staying in BJP would have resulted in an enormous defeat for these influential backward leaders like Swami Prasad Maurya, Dharam Singh Saini and plenty of others. Therefore, they selected to modify sides.
Now, so far as the affect of this mass exodus on the ruling BJP is worried, this may be comprehended by analysing final time period’s elections within the state.
In 2017, most leaders of the M and Y class have been related to the BJP that benefitted the occasion, vastly. Nonetheless, this time due to an enormous break up in caste-based vote financial institution, BJP may need to endure if the votes are solid on the idea of caste/class.
One other difficultly for the saffron occasion is its lack of allies. The occasion is now left with solely two allies – Nishad Get together and the opposite is Apna Dal (S) whereas Akhilesh Yadav has fashioned an alliance with 6 small events, one more issue that appears to be working in Samajwadi Get together’s favour.
It’s anticipated that if elections are held on the idea of caste, then Akhilesh Yadav’s occasion will certainly profit from that but when polling occurs within the title of faith and Modi, then BJP will certainly get some browny factors.
Now, the foremost query that each voter should ask is – how will the present developments affect me as a voter? Will these exits and re-joinings profit me? The reply to this pertinent query is a straightforward NO.
One should perceive that the leaders who’re solely constructing their premises on the idea of their caste to win a seat won’t ever do any good both for the individuals of their caste, neighborhood or the state basically.
And possibly, these leaders is perhaps seen altering sides as soon as once more within the subsequent election citing neglect in direction of the backward courses, for which they really did nothing.
