After SP MLCs resign, Akhilesh calls it 'political corruption'

The first leader to hand over his resignation was Rashtriya Shia Samaj founder Bukkal Nawab

Two SP MLCs, Bukkal Nawab, Yashwant Singh, and a BSP MLC Thakur Jaiveer Singh resigned from the state council amid a buzz that the three resigned to adjust 4-5 BJP ministers who have to take the membership of either of the two houses till September 18.

Reacting sharply to the resignation of three SP Members of Legislative Council (MLCs) earlier in the day and reports of their joining the BJP, Yadav said he would not stop any of these members from quitting the party.

Bukkal Nawab, as reported by ET, said that he is ready to join the BJP given an invitation is extended to him.

"I am feeling very suffocated since last one-year".

Nawab was all praises for PM Narendra Modi and UP CM Aditya Nath Yogi as he went to meet the Vidhan Parishad chairman to put in his papers."PM Narendra Modi believes in "Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas" and BJP is doing a good job in UP as well under CM Yogi", he said, but remained non-committal on joining BJP.

Taking a dig at the deteriorating personal and political relationship between Akhilesh Yadav and his father, Nawab said that it is clear that when he is not with his own father, then how can he be with the people.

In the moments afterward, calls between other pilots and the air traffic controllers described the crash. The crash closed most of Interstate 15 for more than eight hours, according to the Utah Highway Patrol .

SP chief and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav said he had met Nawab on Eid and wondered as to why he had a "sudden change of heart". "From Bihar to Gujarat people are watching BJP's large-scale political dishonesty and they will give it a befitting reply", Akhilesh said.

Former chief minister and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav accused the BJP of being behind the resignations of his party MLCs.

Besides Adityanath, deputy chief ministers Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma, ministers Swatantra Dev Singh and Mohsin Raza are not members of either the Assembly or the Council and will have to get elected to either of the two Houses to continue as ministers.

" They are offering inducements to our MLCs".

"I will talk to him (Nawab), if he has not been kept hostage and ask him as to why he is not giving the ruling BJP leaders a chance to face the public (election)".

One BSP MLC Jay Veer Singh also resigned from his membership of Upper house.
