In the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SubhaSP) led by former minister Omprakash Rajbhar, a member of the Samajwadi Party alliance, won six seats. With the alliance of SP, SubhaSP was in the fray for 18 assembly seats in the state. Now after the defeat in the election, OP Rajbhar has made a new allegation. He has claimed that the names of candidates for 122 seats of Purvanchal were decided in the BJP office, while election symbols were given in the BSP office.
OP Rajbhar said, “We have decided to review the assembly elections. Based on the report, we will try to work on our shortcomings. The second thing is that BSP and BJP have merged, which is a big game in UP.” Done. There are 122 seats in Purvanchal on which candidates were decided in BJP office and election symbols were given in BSP office. I can give proof of this. Be it BSP or Congress, the parties which were in power 4 times Supported BJP. Where did their vote go?”
“Know from the first stage we were losing”
Earlier Om Prakash Rajbhar had said that he realized his defeat only after the first phase, but chose to remain silent, ‘Like a doctor who never tells a patient’s family that he is going to die, But he actually dies.’ Rajbhar said the alliance has failed to read the minds of voters. He said, “How could I talk about losing at that time, because there were 6 more steps left.”
Let us tell you, in the 2017 assembly elections, Subhaspa had contested eight seats in alliance with BJP and won four seats. After this, Om Prakash Rajbhar was sworn in as a cabinet minister in the BJP government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. However, after a few months, his rift with the BJP started. In 2019, Rajbhar rebelled with the BJP and after leaving the ministerial post, he continued to adopt an opposing stand. This time before the assembly elections, he formed an alliance with the Samajwadi Party.
