UP Assembly polls: Samajwadi Party joins hand with Om Prakash Rajbhar’s Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party

·2 min read

The Samajwadi Party on Wednesday formally announced it would contest the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in alliance with the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party.

Making the announcement, the Samajwadi Party in a tweet said that the two parties will join hands to fight the battle of the deprived, the oppressed, the backward, the Dalits, women, farmers, youth and the weaker section to defeat the BJP.

Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) president Om Prakash Rajbhar shared a video of the meet with a similar message on Twitter.

The news comes as a surprise as last week, Rajbhar had hinted that he might again form an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the upcoming UP assembly elections.

Rajbhar, who was addressing a press conference in Lucknow, said, "In the interest of the society, we went to the BJP with the report of the Social Justice Committee, but the BJP did not listen to us, now if the BJP accepts it, then we can go with them also."
