Leading Uttar Pradesh backward class leader Swami Prasad Maurya has left the Samajwadi Party led by Akhilesh Yadav. After jumping from the BSP to the BJP to the Samajwadi Party, the 70-year-old leader announced on Thursday that he will launch his own political organization. The sources claim that the party will be called the Rashtriya Shoshit Samaj Party.

After making contentious remarks about the consecration of the Ayodhya temple and the Ramcharitmanas, Mr. Maurya resigned from his position as national general secretary of the party on February 13, citing discrimination against him and a lack of support from the leadership.

“Talks about Samajwad, but doesn’t act. No personal grudge against Akhilesh (Yadav) but there’s an ideological difference,” stressed the UP leader taking a swipe at his former party chief.

He joined the Samajwadi Party from the BJP ahead of the 2022 assembly polls, contesting the elections unsuccessfully from Fazilnagar. His daughter Sanghmitra is the BJP’s Badaun MP.

“I got an opportunity to work with you (Akhilesh Yadav). But after our talks on February 12 and my resignation (as national general secretary) on February 13, no initiative of any talks with me was taken due to which I am resigning from the primary membership of the party,” Mr Maurya said in a letter to party chief Akhilesh Yadav, adding that there will be no rethink on the decision.

The leader underscored that he will work to strengthen the Opposition bloc INDIA, which has hit a roadblock with parties unable to resolve seat-sharing talks.

“India bloc is needed, will try to strengthen INDIA bloc,” he added.
