Revealed: SP, RLD, BJP, AAP, BSP 'Holi celebrations' in UP


Lucknow, March 18: On Monday, the festival of colours was celebrated all over the country by people from all walks of life including politicians.

In-fact, many politicians got themselves drenched in the different hues of Holi colours and used the occasion to reach out to voters, ahead of forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Mayawati remained 'colourless' on Holi

But the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati was an exception as she didn't become the part of the Holi festivities.

According to a TOI report, Mayawati does not celebrate Holi since she follows Buddhism. She is keeping the legacy alive as the party's founder Kanshi Ram also stayed away from all festivities.

So, the BSP members keep their celebrations to the 'individual level'.

Mulayam Singh Yadav reached out to voters on Holi

On the contrary, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, who is known for his rustic Holi parties, left for his home town Etawah to celebrate the colourful festival.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, his parliamentarian wife Dimple Yadav, PWD Minister and Mulayam Singh's brother Shivpal Singh Yadav, and Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav left for Saifai for Holi celebrations.

RLD Chief Ajit Singh organised Holi party

Rahtriya Lok Dal (RLD) Chief Ajit Singh organised a Holi function in his constituency Baghpat and invoked the name of his father Chaudhary Charan Singh.

AAP's Kumar Vishwas took a break from jhadu!

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas, who has been pitted against Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi in the upcoming polls, took a break from his election campaign in Amethi constituency and celebrated Holi in Delhi.

He resumed his "jhadu chalao" campaign on Tuesday.

BJP's Lalji Tandon smeared 'Lal' colour!

Veteran BJP leader and sitting MP from Lucknow, Lalji Tandon, who was left sulking as Rajnath Singh bagged the Lucknow seat, forgot the bitterness on Holi and enjoyed the festival.

In Meerut, state BJP chief Laxmikant Bajpayi celebrated Holi in a 'political' way by raising slogans like "Har har Modi, ghar ghar Modi," and by throwing gulal and colours in the air, along with party workers on two-wheelers.

Former Congress leader Jagdambika Pal, who recently joined BJP, wished Holi to Rajanth Singh, who is likely to contest from Domariyaganj seat.
