Lucknow: After it came to light in the Rashtriya Lok Dal that 8 candidates of the Samajwadi Party would contest the assembly elections on the symbol of RLD, problems are increasing in the party. This is included in the 32 seats given by the SP to the RLD. According to party sources, some seats in Meerut and Muzaffarnagar, which are considered RLD strongholds, have gone to SP’s account. For instance, SP leader and former MLA Ghulam Mohammad was given ticket from Siwalkhas constituency of Meerut, while Manisha Ahlawat was given ticket from Meerut Cantonment. Both have been given the symbol of RLD.
‘We are junior partners in the alliance, but…’
A Rashtriya Lok Dal leader said, “We are junior partners in the alliance, but are strong in western UP and dominate the region. It seems our chief Jayant Choudhary has succumbed to the pressure of SP. Under the leadership of National Jat Federation State President Rohit Jakhar, many party workers staged a sit-in at the statue of late Chaudhary Charan Singh in Meerut. Jakhar said, “Seat sharing has given a walkover to the BJP. We have nothing to lose. It is Akhilesh Yadav, who dreams of becoming the chief minister.
‘We know how to beat such mentality’
Jakhar said, “If Akhilesh cannot respect the rules of the alliance, then we know how to defeat such mentality.” The protest in this matter is not limited to Meerut but has spread to other areas. An RLD leader said, “The outrage is widespread. The SP has fielded its candidates on the symbol of the RLD, where Jats form a majority and were considered safe seats. For example, Sanjay Latar (Jat leader but SPA is fighting on RLD symbol) in Mathura, Rajpal Saini in Khatauli are some such candidates.
We have been cheated: RLD spokesperson
Rashtriya Lok Dal’s West UP spokesperson Abhishek Choudhary said, “There are 6 assembly seats in Muzaffarnagar and 5 have gone to RLD’s account, but in reality 4 out of these 5 candidates belong to SP on RLD’s symbol. We have been cheated.’ According to party leaders, the alliance of RLD and SP was broken in 2017 due to this reason. A senior party leader said, “Akhilesh Yadav is trying to take advantage of the RLD’s hard work in creating a strong narrative against the BJP.” (IANS)
