Lucknow, April 25: The political upheaval has intensified after jailed Azam Khan did not turn up to meet to the representatives of the Samajwadi Party and meeting with Congress’s Acharya Pramod Krishnan in jail. The infighting going on in the Samajwadi Party has started coming out now.
Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav is coming on the backfoot after his uncle Shivpal Yadav met Azam Khan in jail.
According to political analysts, the BJP is also trying to increase the internal discord within the Samajwadi Party, so that the Samajwadi Party may be disintegrated by the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Sources say that under this campaign, the BJP did not include Shivpal Yadav in the BJP nor has it formed an alliance yet. BJP has asked Shivpal Yadav to expand his organization.
Sensing the displeasure of Azam Khan during this time, Shivpal Yadav also went to meet him in jail.
On the other hand, after Pramod Krishnan’s meeting with Shivpal Yadav, the speculation in the political corridor has intensified.
Although Pramod Krishnan has claimed it as a personal meeting, but it is believed that the Congress has also started putting up a thread to bring Azam Khan to Congress’s court. Under this, Pramod Krishnan has met Azam Khan.
Dinesh Yadav, former president of Allahabad University and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (PSP) leader, denied any alliance and said that PSP will now work to increase its base in the state. Shivpal Yadav has always been a grassroots leader. Even today more than half the MLAs of Samajwadi Party are with him.
At the same time, after meeting with Azam Khan, the Congress leader Acharya Pramod Krishnan, close to Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi and Mahant of Kalkidham Ashram, said that he had not come to meet Azam to make a strategy, came to Sitapur jail to inquire about his health and well being.
He said that a lot of atrocities have happened with Azam Khan. In UP, the Yogi government has committed atrocities against the innocent.
On the other hand, a day before Akhilesh Yadav, a delegation of Samajwadi Party went to Sitapur to meet Azam Khan, whom Azam Khan refused to meet.
