BSP's founder member Deena Nath Bhaskar resigns


Bhadohi, Apr 4: Founder member of BSP and former minister Deena Nath Bhaskar has resigned from the primary membership of the party, accusing the leadership of "selling tickets" to candidates.

"I have sent my resignation through speed post on April 2," Bhaskar told reporters here.


After "feeling suffocated" in BSP, he joined Samajwadi Party but in May 2009 he rejoined the party, he said.

He alleged that Lok Sabha and Assembly tickets were being "sold" to candidates by the party leadership and he was being "insulted" for the last five years. [Mayawati charges money for tickets, says BSP MP Jugal Kishore]

The former minister claimed that 28 BSP MLAs could soon form a separate group and float a new party. Bhaskar also claimed that some senior BSP leaders would leave the party.

Replying to a question, he said that he was not planning to join any party as of now and would take any step only after consulting his supporters.
