Nawab, who is the founder of Rashtriya Shia Samaj, heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. According to sources close to him, the former chief minister has chose to wait till SP 's national convention in September, when his position as the national president would be rectified formally."By then most of the black sheep would have left the party, giving an opportunity to Akhilesh to reorganise the outfit", says a legislator close to the former CM, who has been hinting that those hobnobbing with the BJP have no place in SP.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, bhis deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya and ministers in the Yogi government - Dinesh Sharma, Swatantra Dev Singh and Mohsin Raza - are due to get elected to either house of the UP legislature by August in order to continue in office.

Former UP Chief Miniter Akhiesh Yadav has blamed the BJP for the resignation of party leaders. There has been speculation that the BJP is not confident of Maurya's victory in the Assembly by-poll and earlier there had also been rumours that to avoid a defeat, the party may even ask him to resign from the UP cabinet and continue as a Member of Parliament from Phulpur.

"It's his personal decision that he has resigned from his party".

Yadav said the BJP is indulging in "political corruption". "The BJP wants to divert the attention of the people from its failures in terms of welfare policies and governance and is now out to paint the opposition parties as corrupt by misusing government agencies", Mayawati said in a statement issued here on Saturday. Their resignations have coincided with BJP President Amit Shah's visit that will extend for two more days.
