Bhim Army chief backs SP-BSP pre-poll alliance
Muzaffarnagar: Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Aazad on Sunday offered support to the newly formed SP-BSP alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. “The alliance has our full support. We will work hard to stop BJP from coming to power in 2019,” he said.
Azad was in the district to participate in a Dalit event which drew supporters from many adjoining districts and where he was welcomed on the stage with anti-Modi slogans.
“There was an alliance between SP and BSP in 1993 which was an ideological one, but this alliance now is a demand of the time. We will make this alliance stronger to stop BJP from coming to power and we will work hard to realise this,” Aazad said.
On the EWS quota bill, Aazad said, “We do not support the Centre’s move. When the Dalit movement gets stronger, this quota will be abolished.”
