Uttar Pradesh Cabinet minister Om Prakash Rajbhar, who heads BJP ally SBSP, is a constant source of embarrassment for the Yogi Adityanath govt due to his tantrums and open challenge to kick him out of the alliance.
Lucknow: Rarely ever before has Uttar Pradesh politics seen a tantrum- thrower like Om Prakash Rajbhar, a Cabinet minister in Yogi Adityanath government who has been declared an “attention-seeker” by his own Cabinet colleagues.
He also justified use of money and muscle power in elections.
The BJP, meanwhile, has steadfastly avoided reacting or commenting on Mr Rajbhar’s antics and, if sources are to be believed, the party would prefer that he leaves the alliance on his own rather than showing him the door.
This is not an indication of a security issue such as a virus or attack.
Mr Rajbhar is the self -proclaimed head of the Rajbhar community that constitutes 2.6 per cent of the state’s population and has a presence in about 42 Assembly constituencies.
The BJP, apparently, feels that its dalit and OBC outreach would receive a jolt if it takes action against Mr Rajbhar.
“We do not wish to be seen as anti-OBC on the eve of Lok Sabha elections.
