With defections rising, more BJP MLAs may get to contest

The BJP is taking a look at limiting the variety of sitting MLAs it may deny tickets to for the upcoming polls to stop more defections. This follows a spate of resignations from the occasion, together with that of three ministers which has come as a humiliation for the ruling occasion.

About 30% of the sitting MLAs have been anticipated to lose tickets this time, coming to little lower than 100 candidates, however the occasion may now deny tickets solely to about 10-15% of the sitting MLAs, a senior UP BJP functionary instructed ET.

In what’s being seen as a firefighting train to stop defections and to counter the narrative of “discrimination”, Yogi Adityanath participated in a “sahbhoj” programme or shared a meal with the household of a Dalit man, Amrit Lal Bharti, in Gorakhpur. “Those who do dynasty politics and encourage only their families cannot be supporters of social justice. Those who have corruption in their genes cannot fight the battle of social justice. Social justice is giving the benefits of government schemes to every poor, every section of society without socially or financial discriminating against them,” Yogi instructed mediapersons in Gorakhpur, in an obvious reference to the leaders becoming a member of SP.

“The government has provided welfare schemes to all sections of society in the past five years without discrimination which is how 45 lakh poor have gotten houses, 2.61 crore poor have toilets,” he stated.
