Battle for UP: Samajwadi party faces problem of plenty – Lucknow News

Too many claimants on each seat and the menace of the seat going to a brand new entrant is certain to create issues for SP president Akhilesh Yadav who could have a tricky time dealing with the dissent in party ranks.

The eleven legislators who’ve walked in from BJP, and the 9 legislators who got here in earlier from BSP and others who’ve been becoming a member of the SP over the previous months, are all claimants for tickets.

“Till now there are around four dozen leaders from other parties who have joined SP and want tickets. Besides, the party is giving around 60 tickets to the allies, including Rashtriya Lok Dal. This implies that around 100 tickets are not available to those party leaders who have worked relentlessly in their respective constituencies in the past five years,” stated a senior party functionary.

The entry of prime leaders like Swami Prasad Maurya, Dara Singh Chauhan, Dharam Singh Saini of BJP, Imran Masood of the Congress and Ram Achal Rajbhar and Lalji Verma of BSP, has left the SP employees of their constituencies fearful.

“Inducting leaders, just weeks or months before the elections, is unethical and unfair for those who have worked on the ground. We toil for five years and then a leader walks in from another party and takes away the ticket. What are we expected to do in such a situation?” requested a SP ticket aspirant from Ambedkar Nagar.

He stated that he had met a senior party chief on this regard and was instructed, “wait for next time”.

“The next time is five years away,” he stated.

Samajwadi Party MLA Manoj Pandey, for occasion, is the sitting MLA from the Unchahar seat for the second consecutive time period.

He had defeated Swami Prasad Maurya’s son Utkasrh Maurya twice-as soon as, when he contested on the BSP ticket and on the BJP ticket.

Pandey has been on tenterhooks ever since Maurya switched to Samajwadi Party this week.

Akhilesh could have a tricky time taking a name on this seat.

Sources stated that he has provided a seat to Maurya’s son from Prayagraj however the resolution remains to be pending.

In Saharanpur, the SP has two new leaders -Dharam Singh Saini and Imran Masood.

Their resolution to affix the SP has already unsettled few leaders and their supporters in Saharanpur not solely from the SP however its alliance associate RLD which wields its affect over west UP.

“The Samajwadi Party has a very committed cadre but if they get upset, it would not augur well for the party. The cadres have faced adverse circumstances in the past five years but have remained loyal to the leadership which will now have to assuage feelings on these 100 seats,” stated political analyst and senior journalist R Okay Singh.
