“If trains carry 300 passengers with no challan, why can’t bikes carry 3”: Akhilesh Yadav’s Ally

New Delhi: Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2022, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) chief Om Prakash Rajbhar has now said today that three riders will be allowed on a bike if his party forms a government in the state.

“A train carries 300 passengers on 70 seats & doesn’t get challans. Why’s there a challan if 3 people ride a bike,” Mr Rajbhar told sources.

He further added, “When our government comes to power, three riders will be able to ride a bike for free, otherwise, we’ll challan jeeps and trains.”

A former BJP ally, the SBSP, which is now part of the Samajwadi Party(SP)-led alliance, has been trying to expand its footprint in the poll-bound state.

During the 2017 polls in Uttar Pradesh, when the BJP-led coalition swept the state winning a total of 325 seats in the 403-member state Assembly, the SBSP, which had then fought the polls in alliance with the saffron party, had won four seats after contesting from eight constituencies — all in eastern UP, its known stronghold.

Rajbhar became an MLA for the first time and was later appointed minister for backward classes welfare. But two years later, disgruntled with the BJP, he withdrew from the alliance and resigned from the Yogi Adityanath cabinet.

So far, the SBSP has announced its candidates from three seats, including one in eastern UP’s Balha (Bahraich) and, to the surprise of many, two in central UP — in Sandila (Hardoi) and Misrikh (Sitapur).
