The Bhim Army will join the Bhagidari Sankalp Morcha, a conglomerate of smaller parties led by the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), chief Om Prakash Rajbhar. Bhim’s army chief Chandra Shekhar met with Om Prakash Rajbhar on Saturday and agreed to participate in the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh as part of the alliance.
SBSP Secretary General Arun Rajbhar said his coalition will compete for all 403 seats in the state.
“We are trying to form the government in the state on education, health, electricity and employment issues. In the 2022 Assembly elections, we will form a government in the state and give free education and power,” Arun Rajbhar said, adding that “Whoever wants to stop the BJP, is welcome in the Morcha.”
In December, AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi had announced his party’s intention to fight in the upcoming state elections in Uttar Pradesh as part of a front led by Om Prakash Rajbhar, a former BJP ally.
“Now we are part of Rajbhar’s morcha,” he said after meeting Party chief Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj (SBSP) here.
The SBSP is already in talks with other parties, including the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Lohia Party (PSPL) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
