On Saturday, the Election Commission had asked the BJP-led Gujarat government for a report on the Congress' defection claims. Where are the internal problems and bickering the BJP is talking about? "What opposition has seen is just a trickle".
Yashwant Singh is considered to be close to Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias "Raja Bhaiyya". There has been speculation that the BJP is not confident of Maurya's victory in the Assembly by-poll and earlier there had also been rumours that to avoid a defeat, the party may even ask him to resign from the UP cabinet and continue as a Member of Parliament from Phulpur.
Reacting to the political development, SP leader Akhilesh Yadav blamed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the resignations from his party leaders. BSP chief Mayawati said the BJP government was misusing the state machinery for political gains and that the MLCs who resigned should not have succumbed to any threats but instead stood against the high handedness of the government in UP. State Labour & Employment Minister said that people who are aware of Mayawati's greed for money will definitely leave the party.
