Minister Swami Prasad Maurya leaves the cabinet of Yogi Adityanath;  Likely to join the Samajwadi party

The Bharatiya Janata party suffered a setback just a month before the parliamentary elections when a key official and Minister of State, Swami Prasad Maurya, resigned from the cabinet today. He is likely to join the Samajwadi Party (SP) led by Akhilesh Yadav.

Maurya announced her resignation via a tweet in Hindi, which translates to: “Due to the blatant attitude of neglect towards the Dalits, the backward classes, the farmers, the unemployed youth and the small and medium traders, I am resigning of the Council of Ministers of Yogi (Adityanath) of UP. “

Yadav then shared a photo of himself with Maurya on Twitter and welcomed him into SP’s fold.

In his resignation letter to the Governor of Uttar Pradesh, Anandiben Patel, Maurya said: “I have fulfilled my responsibilities as Minister of Labor, Employment and Coordination in the Council of Ministers led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, despite adverse circumstances (“vipreet”) and ideology. “

Maurya, who belongs to a backward caste, joined the BJP before the 2017 legislative elections. He represents the constituency of Padrauna. His daughter Sanghmitra is a member of the BJP and represents Badaun in Lok Sabha.

The Uttar Pradesh elections will be held in seven phases – March 10, 14, 20, 23, 27, 3 and 7. The results will be announced on March 10 along with those of four other states linked to the elections – Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur.
