Amit Shah Warns RLD’s Jayant ‘Bhai’ Against SP, Says ‘Together Only Till Vote Counting’


Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday stepped up his attack on the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD), saying the alliance between the two parties for the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh will last only till the counting of votes.

zIn Muzaffarnagar to address a voters’ meeting, Shah said that if the SP forms the government this time, Azam Khan will be a part of the Cabinet and RLD president Jayant Chaudhary will be out.

“Akhilesh Yadav and Jayant Chaudhary held a press conference yesterday and said that they are together. But for how long will this alliance last? If SP forms the government in UP, Jayant bhai will be removed and Azam Khan will come back. The people should understand from the distribution of tickets what will happen next,” he said.

“Earlier SP-BSP ruled in UP and when Behenji’s (Mayawati; BSP President) would come here, she would talk about one caste. When Congress came, they talked about family and when Akhilesh babu would come, he would talk about goondas, mafia and appeasement,” Shah added.

Shah’s comments come a day after Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and his ally, RLD chief Jayant Chaudhary, launched a scathing attack on the BJP’s claim of the exodus of Hindus from Kairana and the party’s post-poll alliance offer to Chaudhary. “Who is accepting their invitation? Imagine the condition they are in that they are compelled to invite!” Chaudhary said.

For the BJP, which faces the ‘Jat challenge’ in other parts of western UP like Muzzafarnagar, Shamli and Bagpat, Saharanpur therefore assumes great importance. Through Shah, BJP will not just hope of retaining the Deoband seat, but will also aim for influencing the nearby constituencies. Before 2017, BJP had last won Deoband only in 1996.
