Akhilesh Yadav said - who is Raja Bhaiya..., I do not know, know why SP President is angry with Raghuraj Pratap Singh
Samajwadi Party National President Akhilesh Yadav reached Pratapgarh on Sunday. After attending the marriage ceremony of the daughter of the SP district president and then after the public meeting, Akhilesh said in a conversation with the reporters that we will fight the elections with the parties with which our alliance has been done. In the coming time, the people of the core committee of the party will decide with whom else to form an alliance. He avoided the question of seat-sharing among the coalition parties. Raghuraj Pratap Singh (Raja Bhaiya) and Mulayam Singh said on the speculation of meeting and alliance that who are Raja Bhaiya... whose name are you taking. I don't know.
In fact, on Thursday, Raghuraj Pratap Singh, MLA from Kunda of Pratapgarh, who was a minister in the BJP and SP government, met SP patron Mulayam Singh Yadav at his residence in Lucknow. Since then a period of political speculation was going on. After the meeting of the Kunda MLA, who was a minister in the Mulayam government, even though the discussion about his alliance with the SP had started, but there was no concrete signal from both the sides. Now Akhilesh Yadav's statement has made it clear that his displeasure has not subsided so far.
The Samajwadi Party, which is preparing for the 2022 assembly elections, is constantly making alliances with smaller parties. So far, many smaller parties like Jayant Chaudhary's RLD, Omprakash Rajbhar's SubhaSP, Dr. Sanjay Singh Chauhan's Democratic Party Socialist, Krishna Patel's Apna Dal (Communist), Keshav Dev Maurya's Mahan Dal have joined the SP. On Wednesday itself, AAP MP Sanjay Singh met Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow. After this, Raghuraj Pratap Singh, MLA from Kunda of Pratapgarh, who was a minister in the BJP and SP government, met SP Patron Mulayam Singh Yadav at his residence on Thursday.
After meeting Mulayam Singh Yadav, Raghuraj Pratap Singh had told reporters that this meeting should not be seen in connection with the elections. Do not draw any other implication from it. He said that he has always been wishing Mulayam Singh on his birthday by meeting him, but this time he could not wish him on his birthday as he was out. Therefore, the next day together wished them all the best.
However, according to sources, Raghuraj Pratap had also talked to Akhilesh Yadav over the phone in the past. After this he met Mulayam Singh Yadav. Raghuraj, who was close to Mulayam Singh, is trying to strengthen his party Jansatta Dal Loktantrik in the state these days. He has been winning consecutive independent elections from Kunda since 1993.
Akhilesh's relationship with Raghuraj Pratap Singh deteriorated when the SP and BSP alliance was formed during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. It was because of Mayawati that he gave his vote to the BJP by not giving his vote to the BSP candidate in the 2019 Rajya Sabha elections, despite Akhilesh's advice. Akhilesh was also very angry on this. Now Raghuraj has met Mulayam to end this bitterness and paved the way for the future.
