Lucknow: A BSP leader in Morabadad has placed his foot firmly in his mouth by openly threatening BJP leaders. Vijay Yadav, while speaking in Morabadab on Tuesday, said, “In BJP waalon ko toh dauda dauda kar maarenge. Ghabrane ki zaroorat nahi hai. Aaj inhe nani yaad aa gai hogi, mari hui nani, ki SP-BSP ek ho gaye (We will beat up BJP people. You don’t need to get scared. They must be scared because now the SP-BSP have come together).”

Only yesterday, on her 63rd birthday, BSP chief Mayawati had told her party workers that the best birthday gift to her would be ensuring that all SP-BSP candidates win in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. 

However, political rivals aren’t taking the alliance any seriously. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said it will create “anarchy” in the state and will be short-lived.

“This alliance will promote anarchy and insecurity only. It was done due to the fear (of the BJP government returning to power) and the people will not accept it,” he said.

He was talking to reporters after offering ‘khichdi’ at Baba Gorakhnath at Gorakhnath temple on Tuesday.

Reacting to SP MLA Hariom Yadav’s statement that the SP-BSP alliance would survive only as long as SP president Akhilesh Yadav bowed to the wishes of BSP supremo Mayawati, Adityanath said, “I am sure this alliance will not last long.”

Even as the Congress was kept out of the alliance, Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma alleged that all three parties were working together. Speaking with ANI, he urged people to not fall for the illusion created by the SP, BSP and Congress. He said even if people voted for the SP-BSP alliance, it would work in favour of the Congress.
