Akhilesh separated from Yadav, even BJP did not give a price… OP Rajbhar got trapped in his own trap!

Lucknow: Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) President Om Prakash Rajbhar has fallen into his own trap. When Rajbhar pulled out of the alliance with the SP after the 2022 assembly polls, he expected the BJP to welcome him with open arms. Rajbhar began his endless tirade against the Samajwadi Party leadership and termed Akhilesh Yadav as a drawing room politician. Even as he stepped up his attack on the SP, the BJP showed no sign of relenting towards Rajbhar.

Rajbhar went so far as to say that the dominant OBC castes, including Mauryas, Patels, Lodhs, Koris and Nishads, and upper castes, including Rajputs and Brahmins, were all with the BJP, and that these castes would support the Samajwadi Party (SP) in any future elections. Will not Rajbhar’s comment comes at a time when BJP and SP are attacking each other over OBC and Dalit votes. Rajbhar also praised the annual budget presented by the Yogi Adityanath government and termed it as pro-poor.

Rajbhar wants to make son MLC: BJP
The BJP has still not responded to his proposals. As a BJP functionary put it, ‘Om Prakash Rajbhar has proved to be an opportunistic ally. His statements are not restrained. We know that he wants a seat in the UP Legislative Council for his son Arvind Rajbhar, but the BJP is not ready for such a deal. Besides, who wants an unreliable ally?’

BJP is strengthening its ‘Rajbhar’
Meanwhile, the BJP, under the leadership of Uttar Pradesh minister Anil Rajbhar, is strengthening its leaders from the Rajbhar community and making inroads among the Rajbhars in various districts. Realizing that Om Prakash Rajbhar may be put on the backburner in the 2024 general elections, many SBSP leaders have started looking for better pastures. SBSP National Secretary Ramakant Kashyap, State Vice President C.P. Nishad and state general secretary Vivek Sharma joined the Nishad party on Saturday.

Rajbhar has gone astray from ideology: Sanjay Nishad
National President of Nishad Party Sanjay Nishad said that SBSP chief OP Rajbhar has deviated from the ideology of the party. The comments made by SBSP leaders against the Kashyap community have hurt the sentiments of the people. He further said that the doors of Nishad Party are open for all. Ramakant Kashyap said that SBSP is doing divisive politics. We are the descendants of Maharishi Kashyap, who was a sage of the Vedic age. We cannot support those who insult our ancestors.

Family is Rajbhar’s concern, discontent within the party
Meanwhile, some disgruntled SBSP leaders, on the condition of anonymity, said that the SBSP has now become a nominal party. Om Prakash Rajbhar is more interested in taking his family forward in politics than taking the party forward. The party earned the ire of the OBCs because it did not support the SP on the Ramcharitmanas issue. We will soon opt for better opportunities in other parties as well. Meanwhile, Om Prakash Rajbhar claimed that ‘some’ parties were trying to ‘harass’ the SBSP. However, this will not work and the SBSP will emerge stronger in the Lok Sabha elections.
