After quitting Akhilesh Yadav’s SP, Rajbhar had claimed that he may now go with the BSP. He praised Mayawati fiercely. However, there was no information about his meeting or conversation with BSP chief Mayawati. There was no indication even from Mayawati that she was interested in an alliance with OP Rajbhar. Meanwhile, Rajbhar’s claim was dealt a major blow by BSP national coordinator Akash Anand. This is not a happy sign at least for Rajbhar.
Akash Anand has rubbished Rajbhar’s intentions through a tweet without naming anyone. He has made it clear that the BSP is not considering an alliance with anyone at the moment. Anand has attacked Rajbhar without calling him opportunistic and selfish. In his tweet, he said, “The whole world appreciates the governance and discipline of BSP chief and former chief minister Mayawati. Some opportunists are trying to run their politics shop in the name of Behenji. Be careful with such people selfish
Rajbhar, who played politics on Akhilesh Yadav sitting in the AC chamber, was constantly attacking the SP. Amid the rebellion, the Samajwadi Party had written a letter to Om Prakash Rajbhar asking him to be free to go anywhere. The SP letter alleged that Rajbhar is busy strengthening the BJP. Earlier, Rajbhar had also demanded a ‘divorce’ from the SP. Later when SP’s letter came, Rajbhar said that they (SP) have divorced us and he accepts us. In this way, this alliance was broken prior to the vote.
Was Om Prakash Rajbhar called by future President Draupadi Murmu herself? listen to what he said
OP Rajbhar became a rebel and constantly advised Akhilesh Yadav to quit the AC because he did not participate in the MLC elections and was not invited to the press conference at the SP office on Yashwant Sinha in the presidential election. At the same time, Shivpal and Rajbhar gave a jolt to the SP by saying that they would vote for NDA candidate Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election. Meanwhile, the Yogi government has provided Y-category security to old aide Rajbhar. It is seen as a gift in return for voting for NDA candidate Draupadi Murmu in the presidential election.
By getting Y category security in Rajbhar, SP leader Udayveer Singh said that Om Prakash Rajbhar has helped the government. Now the government will also help them. Rajbhar is more angry with Akhilesh’s friend than Akhilesh. In his press conference, Akhilesh Yadav said in clear words: He is Uday’s hero. Akhilesh Yadav has said that he is not far from the Samajwadi alliance at the moment. But when reporters asked if you were waiting for your expulsion, Rajbhar said in clear words and in his own style: hume kaun nikega, kiski aukat hai.
There is about a year and a half left for the Lok Sabha elections of 2024. In case of avoiding SP and then failing to attract Mayawati’s attention, Rajbhar is now seen as an alternative in the form of BJP. However, there is no clear indication from either side in this regard. One of the main obstacles in the friendship between BJP and Rajbhar is Mukhtar Ansari and his family. In fact, Abbas, son of jailed mobster Mukhtar, has won the Mau assembly elections. He has been elected on the ticket of Rajbhar party. Currently, Rajbhar is the only leader in state politics, who openly supports the Mukhtar family.
Rajbhar had severed ties with the BJP to split the OBC reservation into two parts. No solution to this problem has been found yet. BJP may also bring Rajbhar with them for the purpose of winning Ghazipur Lok Sabha seat, where BJP could not penetrate the stronghold of Afzal Ansari. Mukhtar’s brother had defeated strongman leader Manoj Sinha. Rajbhar’s party has a significant core vote bank in this seat.
Currently, apart from BJP, SP, BSP, Congress, many small parties are also active in UP politics. Among them are Rashtriya Lok Dal in the West, two factions of Apna Dal, Nishad Party, Subhasp, Keshav Dev Maurya’s Mahan Dal, Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party of Shivpal Singh Yadav (Lohia), Peace Party , Chandrashekhar Ravan’s Azad Samaj Party. Along with this, Asaduddin Owaisi’s Aam Aadmi Party and AIMIM have also joined electoral politics. Another option before Rajbhar is to prepare a new front with Shivpal, Owaisi, Chandrashekhar, Mahan Dal. But now what will Rajbhar decide next, only time will tell.
