President Amit Shah, who arrived here on Saturday on a three-day visit, is expected to tackle several issues dogging the party in the state, including reports of growing disenchantment among party workers with the Yogi Adityanath government.

This comes close to reports of SP member and MLC Yashwant Singh quitting the party to join BJP. The resignations pave the way for Adityanath, Maurya and at least one minister in the state cabinet to get elected as MLCs.

There are hints that the Opposition rebels could head to the BJP or support it. "I dedicate this seat to CM Yogiji", he said.

Yashwant Singh, who is a close aide of Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias "Raja Bhaiyya", may also join BJP.

"I am feeling very suffocated since last one-year. People are watching everything". "The BJP is doing good work and PM Modi has given a good slogan of "Sabka sath, sabka vikas", he said, according to ANI.

In fact, Akhilesh Yadav had also made a sarcastic comment on Nitish Kumar's decision over joining hands with BJP with a Bollywood song and said that the latter could not resist separation from his former ally. Nawab further indicated that many more may soon resign from the party. He was elected to the Legislative Council for a second term only past year.

Reacting to the resignations by two of his MLC's, Akhilesh Yadav blamed BJP for it.

"The BJP", he added, "must clarify why it was not willing to go for a direct election and get its leaders elected through the Vidhan Sabha route?" "Are they afraid of going to the people?" Earlier when talking about the proposed outfit, Shivpal Yadav had said: "Humne ek mauka diya hai ki pura pariwar ikattha ho aur Netaji ko fir se samman mile".

Mr. Yadav resorted to sarcasm to taunt Mr. Nawab, saying not many days had passed since the Shia leader treated him with sewai on Eid.

In a statement, BSP president Mayawati said the BJPs "greed for power has turned into lust for power". She said the BJP's "hunger for power" had now transformed into a "lust".

"While political corruption is on a big scale in Bihar, it seems the same will be done in Uttar Pradesh". With these resignations, SP's strength in the Council will now be reduced to 63.
