- Apna Dal’s Anupriya Patel meets Amit Shah
- AK Sharma met Sanjay Nishad, leader of Nishad Samaj
- Allies feeling neglected in Yogi cabinet
In view of the assembly elections to be held next year in Uttar Pradesh, the country’s largest state in terms of population, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has started the exercise of taking the allies of the state along. Anupriya Patel of ‘Apna Dal’ met Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday. On the other hand, Arvind Kumar Sharma, who joined BJP after taking voluntary retirement from administrative service this year, met senior Nishad Samaj leader Dr Sanjay Kumar Nishad and Sant Kabir Nagar MP Praveen Nishad in Delhi. It is said that the allies are feeling neglected in the Yogi cabinet. There was a discussion on getting a place for Apna Dal.
The round of discussion with allies regarding the upcoming assembly elections will continue. It is worth noting that a few days ago, Anupriya Patel had also met State BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh. There was also talk on the elections of the district panchayat during this time. Apna Dal wants that in some other districts including Mirzapur and Banda, he should be given the post of President of Zilla Panchayat. Before the assembly elections, BJP wants to take allies along, while allies are sorry for not getting respect and position. Significantly, Anupriya Patel has not got a place in the Modi cabinet this time.
