BJP concedes most of SBSP demands to keep the ally happy
Lucknow,March 11(HS)The Bharatiya Janata Party which is not on an easy wicket this time has conceded most of the demands of its ally in UP, the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party, which had threatened to walk out.It may be provided even one or two Lok Sabha seats to keep it on board. The other party ally in the state,Apna Dal (Sonelal), may be also kept in good humour to keep the enemies at bay.The party had won two seats in the previous poll and is demanding eight including Jaunpur and Phulpur.It may be offered one more this year. The problem that the BJP faces is that the other ally,SBSP,is also interesting in contesting from some of the seats demanded by the other ally.Jaunpur is one of them. BJP president Amit Shah has met leaders of these allies more than once.He may meet them again to iron out the differences.Political observers believe that it was at his instance that the Yogi government had agreed to allot a house to the SBSP for setting an office. This could not satisfy the party.It insisted on accommodating some of his party men,particularly son of the president in the council of ministers.He was not made a minister but given the rank of a state minister and appointed in one of the public undertakings. Arvind Rajbhar will be the chairman of Small Industries Development Corporation. Another member of the party,not related to President Om Prakash Rajbhar, was appointed a member of one of the boards.The appointment was made on Sunday (yesterday). It is yet not known if he is fully satisfied and will fully cooperate with the BJP in beating the opposition in the eastern part of the state where it is strong. In any case the BJP leadership is unlikely to ignore if Rajbhar has any other demand. HS/RN
