Mukesh Verma Becomes 7th BJP MLA To Quit Party Ahead Of UP Assembly Polls

Mumbai: Mukesh Verma, UP BJP MLA from Firozabad’s Shikohabad, resigned from the primary membership of the party on Thursday.

Verma has become the seventh BJP MLA to quit the party ahead of the state Assembly polls.

Verma shared his resignation on Twitter and surfaced at the home of Swami Prasad Maurya, who started the exodus.

Verma, an MLA from Firozabad in western Uttar Pradesh, is also an OBC (Other Backward Class) leader like Swami Prasad Maurya and four others who have resigned from the BJP in the last three days.

“Swami Prasad Maurya is our leader. We will support whatever decision he takes. Many other leaders will join us in the coming days,” he told news agency ANI.

In his letter addressed to the state BJP president, Verma alleged that the Yogi Adityanath government has failed to address the problems of weaker sections, youth, farmers, Dalits and OBCs in the last five years.

He said that small traders and traders have suffered under the regime.

The MLA also said that he would now work under the leadership of former cabinet minister Swami Prasad Maurya.

Maurya, Dara Singh Chauhan (both ministers) Roshan Lal Verma, Brijendra Prajapati, Bhagwati Sharan Sagar, Vinay Shakya and Avtar Singh Bhadana resigned in the last two days.

Barring Bhadana who has joined the RLD, all the other legislators are likely to join the Samajwadi Party on Friday.
