Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya said in a conversation that BJP will break its 2014 record of winning 73 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh in the 2024 general elections. He also said that all other political parties in the state are moving towards political oblivion.
KP Maurya said, ‘We have a target of 75 seats for 2024. The Yadav and Jatav communities, and especially the Pasmanda Muslims, are now with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and have started voting for the BJP in large numbers. Yadavs and Jatavs have traditionally been the vote banks of the Samajwadi Party and BSP, respectively. Whereas PM Modi has recently asked the BJP in UP to focus on the Pasmanda Muslims.
Maurya further said that big victories for the BJP in the Lok Sabha by-elections in Azamgarh and Rampur, where permutations were not in our favour, showed that a record victory awaits the BJP in Uttar Pradesh in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. He said that the SP is now moving towards being a ‘samaptwadi party’. There is no chance for Akhilesh Yadav to make a comeback, as ‘politics requires hard work’ and the chief minister’s chair is not a birthright.
Maurya also said that Minister of State Dinesh Khatik should not have written the resignation letter, which he did. He should have raised his issue at the appropriate forum. He strongly refuted that the state’s bulldozer campaign was aimed at Muslims and said that Muslims have seen that no one has been harmed in 8 years of Narendra Modi’s or Yogi Adityanath’s 6 years of rule, as long as Nobody did anything illegal.
