SP has already conceded its defeat in UP polls by terming itself a 'sinking ship': BJP


Lucknow :  Uttar Pradesh BJP has claimed that even as around five months are left for the crucial Assembly elections in the state, the ruling Samajwadi Party has already conceded its defeat. "The statement of a senior state minister that rats flee first from a sinking ship is an enough indication what the ruling party legislators are thinking about the fate of the party in the elections," said State BJP general Secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak here today. Recently, UP Minister Mohammad Azam Khan, while commenting on the exodus of some SP MLAs to BJP and BSP, had commented that rats flee first from a sinking ship. "It is now evident that the ruling SP has conceded its defeat even though Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was putting up a brave face with raking up development issue to take the party to the election," he told reporters.

Mr Pathak further said already SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav had expressed how the corrupt ministers of the Akhilesh government had become burden for the party. "SP President has also given enough indications that party would not return to power due to the corruption and failures by his son's government to address the peoples' issues," he further said. The BJP leader has questioned the action to be taken by the Chief Minister on the statements made by his 'Chaacha'(Shivpal Yadav) and ' chaccha'(Azam Khan). While Shivpal has openly revolted against the party by offering to resign for being ignored by the state officials, Mr Khan has said SP was now a 'sinking ship'. "It seems as SP is almost out of the race in the UP polls and BSP was fighting to contain its leaders, now BJP has a free run for Mission 2017," he claimed.
