OP Rajbhar held several meetings in public and in secret with the OBC leaders of BJP. Swami Prasad Maurya also participated in these meetings.
11 OBC leaders including 3 ministers – Swami Prasad Maurya, Dara Singh Chouhan and Dharam Singh Saini have left the BJP as soon as the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2022 were announced. In the 2017 assembly elections, the upper caste, non-Yadav OBC and non-Jatav dalits gave power to the BJP with a thumping majority by giving about 60 percent votes. OBC vote bank is the key to power in UP politics. In such a situation, leaving these leaders is a big blow for the BJP. After all, how and when did this rebellion of OBC leaders start? Did leaders like Swami Prasad Maurya and Dara Singh Chauhan make this plan to leave the party suddenly or were preparations going on for a long time? Another big question is, were these leaders having problems in the party or were they having trouble with CM Yogi Adityanath.
The script of the stampede in BJP was written in a flight a year ago.
According to the report of Telegraph India, this entire script of the stampede that broke out in the Yogi government a few days ago was written about a year ago. According to the report, “About a year ago, at that time in the Yogi government, Forest Minister Dara Singh Chauhan sat in a fly. This flight was going from Lucknow to Delhi, in which SP President Akhilesh Yadav was also on board. Actually, Dara Singh Chauhan got information about Akhilesh Yadav’s flight to avoid everyone’s eyes and booked his ticket accordingly. Now what happened to it, let us tell you:
“CM Yogi is continuously humiliating and harassing us”
Dara Singh Chauhan told Akhilesh Yadav in the flight, “We are suffocating under Yogi Adityanath. They constantly humiliate and harass us (OBC ministers and MLAs). Please do something… get us out of this hell.” When Dara Singh Chauhan narrated this entire agony to Akhilesh Yadav in the flight, two of his companions were present in the flight along with Akhilesh Yadav.
“I have come as a messenger of Swami Prasad Maurya”
According to the report, Dara Singh Chouhan also told Akhilesh Yadav, “I have come to you as an emissary of respected OBC leader and senior minister Swami Prasad Maurya. If you listen to us, dozens of OBC MLAs may leave BJP and join SP.”
Akhilesh Yadav was not very excited to meet Dara Singh Chouhan
Akhilesh Yadav listened to the whole story of Dara Singh Chauhan in the flight. The SP President did not make any promise at that time, but definitely said, ‘You go and work for the people of your respective assembly constituency. Let us see what we can do. After speaking these things to Dara Singh Chauhan, Akhilesh Yadav landed at Delhi airport and went ahead.
Mulayam Singh Yadav turned the dice, explained this to his son
Akhilesh Yadav was not too keen on including Swami Prasad Maurya and other ministers of the Yogi cabinet and BJP MLAs in the SP, but he changed his mind after the intervention of his father Mulayam Singh Yadav. Akhilesh Yadav felt that ticket distribution would become a problem in the SP with the arrival of many rebel BJP leaders, but Mulayam Singh Yadav explained to him.
Bring all OBC and Dalit leaders together: Mulayam Singh Yadav
Mulayam said, ‘You should contact all OBC and Dalit parties, because this will increase the base of your party apart from the Yadav-Muslim combination. You also have to put an end to the differences with your uncle Shivpal Yadav, who acted as a vote scumbag in 217. It is time to bring together all the parties inspired by Ram Manohar Lohia and Ambedkar-Kanshi Ram.”
OP Rajbhar sparks rebellion among OBC leaders
Before other OBC leaders including Swami Prasad Maurya, Dara Singh Chauhan and Dharam Singh Saini quit the BJP, Om Prakash Rajbhar resigned from the Yogi government and formed an alliance with the SP. Suheldev Bharatiya Janata Party leader Rajbhar was also a minister in the Yogi cabinet. Within a year of Yogi Adityanath taking oath, Rajbhar had declared a rebellion. He was angry with the Yogi government’s decision to sanction Rs 700 crore for school scholarships. Rajbhar was annoyed as to why an amount equal to that of upper caste and backward class children was sanctioned.
Rajbhar’s argument was that there are 5 lakh upper caste students in UP schools, while 25 lakh come from backward classes and deprived societies, so sanctioning an equal amount is unfair. Rajbhar claims that Yogi Adityanath has completely rejected his point in this matter.
“CM Yogi working for upper caste with OBC support”
OP Rajbhar held several meetings in public and in secret with the OBC leaders of BJP. Swami Prasad Maurya also participated in these meetings. According to the report, Rajbhar explained to other leaders including Swami Prasad Maurya how CM Yogi Adityanath is using OBC support to reduce upper caste and Hindutva.
