first_img Siraj Quereshi AgraApril 4, 2019UPDATED: April 4, 2019 22:27 IST Mulayam Singh Yadav. (File photo)The Samajwadi Party (SP) leadership in Agra is shocked and surprised after local leader Ram Sakal Gurjar joined the BJP. Gurjar has been a long-time aide of SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav and had also served as Uttar Pradesh’s sports minister. He joined the BJP in New Delhi on Wednesday (April 3).While senior party leaders refused to comment on this, local SP leaders in Agra were openly vocal against Ram Sakal Gurjar. They accused him of “backstabbing” Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav and party president Akhilesh Yadav by joining hands with the BJP.Besides Gurjar, former Fatehabad MLA Rajendra Singh also returned to the BJP after a brief stint in the Samajwadi Party. It is being rumoured that Rajendra Singh was the brain behind convincing Gurjar to join the BJP.Samajwadi Party Agra (city) president Wajid Nisar said Hurjar’s political career was built by the SP. “He will never get the same respect in the BJP as he got in the SP. Gurjar should be aware that the Narendra Modi government is not returning to power in May. When that happens, the SP-BSP alliance will not accept him back in the party, no matter how much he pleads.”SP’s district president Ram Sahai Yadav said, “Gurjar has his eyes set on the UP assembly elections that will be held in 2022. He plans to contest it on a BJP ticket, thinking that a BJP tag will ensure his victory. He should know that outside the Samajwadi Party, he is nothing except a backstabber who will be discarded by the BJP when his utility is over.”advertisementALSO READ | Will your acche din manifesto come after polls, Akhilesh Yadav ridicules BJPALSO READ | Modi would’ve said he killed Ravana had he gone to Sri Lanka: Ajit SinghALSO READ | Your complete guide for 2019 Lok Sabha electionsALSO WATCH | Case registered against SP leader for sexist remarks against Jaya PradaGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
