Yogi government’s game plan to tackle opposition ties

Ahead of the 2019 general election the coming together of two regional rivals, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party presents a formidable challenge to the currently ruling BJP, necessitating a dynamic counter strategy.

“SP, BSP and Congress have all governed UP and now none of them have the strength to fight the BJP alone. During UP elections, our leader and face was Modi Ji. Today, SP and BSP have created an alliance. They should decide who their leader is. Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav or Mayawati. We have analysed the loss in Gorakhpur and prepared our plan to fight the alliance. We can’t reveal our roadmap now.” Yogi Adityanath stated.

On Wednesday, backward welfare minister Om Prakash Rajbhar, a BJP ally, submitted a report to the chief minister with a proposal to split the 27% OBC quota into three categories of backward, most backward and extremely backward. He said he had been directed by Amit Shah to do so after a meeting between them on April 11.

“While the Samajwadi Party only favoured Yadavs among OBCs, (BSP chief) Mayawati only favoured Jatavs among the SCs. This government wants to benefit all castes, including non-Yadav OBCs and non-Jatav Dalits.” said Rakesh Tripathi, the BJP spokesman in UP.

In a candid admission, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said it was overconfidence and taking the election result for granted that cost the BJP in the recently held Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha bypolls.
