There was talk from commenter Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party’s Omprakash Rajbhar that he might join the BSP. Immediately there was a reaction from the defunct BSP that the BSP had no intention of taking him into its party.
The team of frogs that united with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav in the last assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh is slowly running away from the alliance. Dedka and his small team of leaders who joined Akhilesh in the assembly polls expected the BJP to be defeated in the state. Akhilesh Yadav will form the government in the state. Being in coalition they will enjoy power. The anti-BJP media was fueling their dreams by saying that the BJP would lose badly. Some so-called peasant leaders were also showing all these dreams of power and happiness, but it did not happen. BJP government continued. The leaders gathered for power and pleasure did not see any benefit. How long will they last together? Gradually, the frogs in the coalition and their leaders started jumping away from Akhilesh.
In fact, most alliances in the country are not ideological. The aim is to defeat the ruling party, seize power and enjoy power. All the parties involved in the coalition have their own interests and its leaders have their own interests. To fulfill their own interests, they push back their peers and take advantage of themselves. That is why these alliances do not last long. The same thing happened in this alliance. Before the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Shivpal Yadav came with his nephew Akhilesh Yadav in the name of opposition unity. But he was upset at not being honoured. He was upset due to negligence in distribution of tickets during the election itself. Akhilesh Yadav gave him a ticket but none of his party leaders who joined the grand alliance have been given tickets. Since then he was expressing his displeasure about this. He was also neglected in the election campaign. At that time, a photo of Akhilesh Yadav’s campaign chariot was released. In which Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh are sitting on the chair. Shivpal Yadav has not found a place to sit and is traveling in a chariot standing behind these two.

Even after the election, Shivpal Yadav started saying that he had made a mistake. They should not have joined the coalition. Gradually they got separated. Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party’s Omprakash Rajbhar used to criticize BJP when he was in BJP. In the recent elections, he joined the SP alliance with his team. He had an alliance with AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi before joining Akhilesh Yadav. He also traveled a lot. Even during his friendship with Owaisi, he remained in touch with the BJP. Seeing a mistake somewhere, he joined Akhilesh Yadav. Akhilesh did a lot to satisfy his ego. Full respect is given. But after the election, Omprakash Rajbhar started expressing his displeasure from the public platform. How long will it last? Akhilesh Yadav was forced to say that if Rajbhar feels he is being neglected then who is stopping him, he can go wherever he wants.
There was talk from commenter Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party’s Omprakash Rajbhar that he might join the BSP. Immediately there was a reaction from the defunct BSP that the BSP had no intention of taking him into its party. BJP also did not give him any lift this time. Actually all the politicians are aware of the conduct and behavior of Omprakash Rajbhar of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party. Even being in the coalition, he continues to criticize it. They try to project themselves as supreme in the coalition. Now they are blaming Akhilesh Yadav for the breakup of their party. In a recent press conference, he has also said that SP’s Akhilesh Yadav is trying to break his party.

Akhilesh Yadav made great sacrifices to keep RLD in grand alliance. He did not send any member of his party and sent RLD’s Jayant Chaudhary to the Rajya Sabha. But now his tone is different. Rajod state president Ramashish Rai recently announced in Baghpat that his party will contest the local body polls single-handedly in November. Akhilesh Yadav’s SP and RLD saw different paths on the first day of the assembly session as well.
The SP chief had already announced that he would walk from the party office to the House with his MLAs to attend the proceedings of the House. It is alleged that he did not even talk to the coalition party for this. SP marched on foot. A pseudo-legislature was organized on the road when the police stopped them on the way. At the same time, members of the RLD participated in the proceedings of the House. Before going to the House, the RLD MLAs staged a dharna in front of Chaudhary Charan Singh’s statue in the Assembly premises. After the dharna, he joined the proceedings of the House. Later, RLD MLA leader Rajpal Balyan said that we were not invited by the SP for the foot march, if we had been invited we would have definitely been invited. Omprakash Rajbhar of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party also remained in the House. The couple got separated almost two months before the local body elections. The time for the Lok Sabha elections has come, there is no telling what will happen next.
