Bhim Rajbhar, the BSP UP president, has been finalised from the Mau assembly seat in place of Mukhtar Ansari, Mayawati said in a tweet in Hindi. She says, "Alongside ensuring 'a rule of law, by law', the BSP's resolve is to also change Uttar Pradesh’s image now."
While 16 opposition parties issued a joint statement announcing their decision to boycott the President's address, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) also separately announced their decision to boycott the address.
Sonia Gandhi, the Congress interim President, also managed a coup of sorts by ensuring not just the participation of the Trinamool Congress but also of Mamata Banerjee herself, despite the presence of Left leaders Sitaram Yechury and D. Raja in the discussion, writes Puneet Nicholas Yadav.
Addressing a press conference at the Samajwadi Party (SP) headquarters, Akhilesh Yadav said, 'Be it the NPR or the NRC, these are against the poor people, minorities and Muslims of the country.'
The Supreme Court on Tuesday recalled its direction in the March 20, 2018 verdict which had virtually diluted provisions of arrest under the SC/ST Act.
Mayawati's decision had raised doubts about the sustainability of her party's alliance with SP, barely 10 days after the BJP handed them a huge defeat in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.
On Monday, addressing a meeting in New Delhi, Mayawati conveyed to party leaders that the grand coalition hadn't yielded the BSP desired results, and the SP had failed to get Yadav votes transferred to her party candidates.
The Congress described this likelihood as a "very dangerous mistake" and said it was ready to fight the parliamentary polls alone in the state.
According to BJP’s own calculations, an SP-BSP alliance may cost the party at least 25-30 seats in the state in the general elections.
