UP BJP chief calls ally leader “Thief”, embarks controversy

Lucknow | Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Mahendra Nath Pandey on Tuesday called its ally Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party leader Kailash Sonkar a “chor”(thief) and the incensed leader has threatened to take him to court.

While inaugurating Central governments projects in Kailash Sonkar’s constituency Ajghara, near Varanasi, the BJP leader said the lawmaker’s name cannot be put on the foundation stone as he has “turned out to be a thief”.

“I am saying it very clearly…I have been told that he (Kailash Sonkar) has been looting poor people. It is the people who are complaining against him. We will not tolerate any corruption from elected representatives,” Pandey told media.

Meanwhile, S-BSP leader Kailash Sonkar said “I cannot understand why he has used these words against me,” “I am exploring legal options and I will ensure that my name is not sullied like this,” he added.

Earlier S-BSP chief and state minister Om Prakash Rajbhar criticised Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying he wasn’t consulting allies in matters of governance. Mr Rajbhar had threatened the BJP, saying his party’s four lawmakers would not vote for the BJP candidates in the Rajya Sabha elections.
