Lucknow: BHIM Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad has launched a front against the BJP. He has announced to contest from Gorakhpur Sadar seat. CM Yogi Adityanath is in the fray from the same seat. The same Chandrashekhar Azad had been trying to reach an agreement with the SP for a long time now. He has alleged that the Samajwadi Party is not giving him as many seats as he had asked for. Now he has said that he will no longer compromise with SP even if they give him 100 seats.
At the same time, Chandrashekhar Azad had said that it would not ally with the SP even if they gave him 100 seats in the UP assembly elections. Azad while addressing the press in Greater Noida said his party will contest alone in UP. He said he had taken this decision after not talking to the SP. Azad also released the first list of his party nominees on the occasion.
At the same time, he had earlier said in a statement that if his party expresses, he can contest from Gorakhpur city seat against UP CM Yogi Adityanath. The BJP has fielded CM Yogi Adityanath from Gorakhpur city seat. Earlier there were reports of him contesting from Ayodhya or Mathura. But the BJP put an end to the discussions by announcing that he would be given a ticket from Gorakhpur city. He said the Azad samaj party and BHIM Army have workers and organizations in all the seats in the state. Chandrashekhar Azad levelled several allegations against Samajwadi Party national president and former CM Akhilesh Yadav without naming him. He had earlier promised to give him 25 seats. After that, his party was cheated. Chandrashekhar Azad said that now even if the SP gives him 100 seats, he will not go with him. He said he would help the parties even after the elections to stop the BJP.
