BJP ally SBSP says it is being ignored by UP CM

Accusing Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath of not following "coalition dharma," BJP ally SBSP today said it felt "ignored" by him.

"I will have detailed discussions with BJP president Amit Shah on various issues when he visits Lucknow on April 10 and then decide my party's course of action," SBSP leader and UP Cabinet minister Om Prakash Rajbhar told mediapersons here.

He stopped short of saying that his Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party could part ways with the NDA if he was not satisfied with the mediatory efforts of Shah.

The SBSP has four MLAs in the 403-member UP assembly where its the BJP and its allies have a brute majority of 324 lawmakers.
