Lucknow, Sep 3 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh’s ruling Samajwadi Party on Thursday walked out of the anti-BJP coalition in Bihar and said it will contest the assembly election in the state on its own.

Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav told reporters here that the “grand coalition” had humiliated his party by giving it just five of the 243 seats.

He said the Samajwadi Party would contest the upcoming Bihar polls “with all its might” and would talk to other parties as well.

There are indications that the party would field 150 candidates in Bihar.

Asked if the decision was linked to his recent meeting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah, Yadav answered in the negative.

He said the Samajwadi Party could not be blamed for the division of secular votes, saying the BJP did well in recent elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat even in a straight contest.

Ashok Singh, president of the Uttar Pradesh unit of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), called the Samajwadi Party decision “very unfortunate”.

He said all stakeholders should get together and rethink the issue.

But Samajwadi Party sources ruled out any such possibility and added that the decision was final.

While there were back-channel talks between RJD chief Lalu and Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh in recent days over seat allocation, the deal did not materialize largely owing to opposition from Ram Gopal Yadav.

While the Samajwadi Party was not given any seat initially, Lalu Prasad gave away five seats from his quota of 100.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal-United will contest another 100 seats. The Congress will contest 40 seats and the Nationalist Congress Party three.

    Dear readers,

    No other party has changed hand more than Mulayam Samajwadi party. The BJP president and master strategist Amit Shah knew the weakness of him and quick to grab the opportunity.

    In other hand Nitish and Laloo has ugly marriage is well known fact. Lalu Yadavs RJD has already weakened with two of his key members starting their own political front. BJP has started consolidating and recalculated the cast equation well in advance when Nitish-Lalu coalition won 6 out of 10 seats in bye-election.Former Dalit CM Manjhi exist from JD(U) has also became trump card which already has consolidated upper caste support it.The JD(U) and BJP split has was ensured to keep the communal card boiling to pave the way for BJP to come to get majority.

    Experts on Political affairs in Bihar say that the presence of Owaisi in Bihar assembly elections will go a long way to polarise voters on communal lines. Moreover it will further divide the Muslim votes. Would Owaisi be an agent provocateur in Bihar Assembly Election for BJP which spoiled the chances of Congress in Maharashtra? Another party like SDPI entry will further divide the minority vote bank, which will increase the margin of BJP winning.

    The BJP which has lost Delhi is desperate to increase the Rajya Sabha tally to pass its controversial bills.Bihar once again became BJP platform to experiment its old formula of casteism,communalism, corruption and criminalism.

    The 14 Lok Sabha led by PM MODI ‘GOOD GOVERNANCE” already laid red carpet to the highest criminals lawmakers in the history of our nation.

    Is Bihar is going to see ‘Smart state’ or ‘Jungle raj’ under BJP if it comes to power is question of the our?Is ‘Biharis’ are really intelligent to understand the Modi’s token appreciation?

    Jai Hind

  2. United Hindus will vote for BJP and Mr Modi. BJP is not communal rather MIM owaisi is communal, congress, sp, rjd are communal. how can you say muslim votes are secular and hindu votes are communal. United hindus will vote for BJP in Bihar and give Modi and thumping victory

  4. Apparently the Modi BJP blackmailed Mulayam into ditching the coalition. BJP threatened to open a CBI corruption investigation into Mulayam’s associates if Mulayam refused to cooperate with BJP’s demands.

  5. “Apparently the Modi BJP blackmailed Mulayam into ditching the coalition” – Roy

    Really? They could have done this earlier even before the grand coalition was formed, right? Also, they could have done the same for Laalu Prasaada Yadava as he is also an extremely corrupt person, right? In fact, Mulaam yaadava is an insignificant player in Bihar and Laalu can create a big damage if he chooses to leave the coalition.

    Clearly your comments make no sense except for your hatred towards BJP purely based on religious lines. But I appreciate your laughable attempt to float a silly conspiracy theory!! smiles…
