BJP will effectively wipe them off: CM Yogi on BSP-SP alliance
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday claimed the recently-forged alliance between the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party will have no impact on the politics of the state, and that the BJP will "effectively wipe them off". Speaking at a programme here, Adityanath noted that the BSP-SP alliance denoted "casteist mentality" and "anarchic elements". "The (SP-BSP) alliance means giving power to people who are corrupt, anarchic elements and have casteist mentality. This alliance will have no impact on the politics of the state. "It is good that both these parties have come together. It will help us to effectively wipe them off," he asserted. Meanwhile, Shivpal Singh Yadav on Sunday said that his Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia (PSPL) is ready to form an alliance with the Congress in Uttar Pradesh for the coming Lok Sabha elections. In an exclusive interview to ANI, PSPL chief Yadav said the SP and the BSP alliance is a ‘Thugbandhan’ (alliance among thugs). “This alliance is a ‘Thugbandhan’ and is for money,” added Yadav.
