UP cabinet minister Dara Singh Chauhan quits; SP and Congress MLAs join BJP
Chauhan said apart from the neglect being shown towards Dalits, backwards, the unemployed youth and others, he was also hurt by the way the government was “messing” with the reservations of Dalits and backwards.
Meanwhile, SP MLA from Firozabad, Hariom Yadav, and Congress MLA from Saharanpur, Naresh Saini, joined the BJP in Delhi. Former SP MLA Dharmpal Yadav too joined the BJP while senior vice-president of UP Congress Committee Imran Masood finally joined the SP. Avtar Singh Bhadana, BJP MLA from Muzaffarnagar, joined the Rashtriya Lok Dal.
