Talking to media, the former UP CM said, "I came to know about Bukkal Nawab's resignation. I met him recently and I know him for a long time. If he's not been shifted to somewhere by BJP, I will meet him. This is 'political corruption'. But if someone wants to leave, they can leave," Yadav said.
His comments are in line with the Congress party, who have alleged against BJP of abducting its MLAs in Gujarat ahead of Rajya Sabha polls.
SP MLC and Rashtriya Shia Samaj founder Bukkal Nawab today tendered his resignation from the party while singing a favorable tune for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath. This comes close to reports that suggest that SP member and MLC Yashwant Singh has also quit the party.
Talking about Nitish Kumar joining hands with the BJP in Bihar, Akhilesh Yadav mocked at Bihar CM and said,"People who spoke about DNA, now joined NDA".
It may be recalled that during Bihar assembly election in 2015, Nitish has called PM Modi's DNA remark 'an insult to the people of Bihar'.
In fact, Akhilesh Yadav had also made a sarcastic comment on Nitish Kumar's decision over joining hands with BJP with a Bollywood song and said that the latter could not resist separation from his former ally.
