Bhim Army chief backs SP-BSP pre-poll al­liance

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION - Mohd Dil­shad

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.”
