My full support to SP-BSP alliance: Bhim Army chief
Muzaffarnagar: Showing his support to the newly formed SPBSP alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad said, “The alliance has our full support. We will do hard work to stop BJP from coming to power in the 2019 elections.”
Azad was in the district to participate in a Dalit event.
“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 allian- ce stronger to stop BJP from coming to power and we will work hard to realise this,” he said.
Speaking on the the Centre’s recent 10% quota for the economically weaker sections of upper castes, Azad said, “We do not support the Centre’s move. When the Dalit movement gets stronger, this quota will be abolished.” Azad had earlier appealed to Dalits, Muslims and OBCs not to cast vote in favour of BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha polls “if the Constitution is to be protected”.
