UP Election 2022: Another jolt to Mayawati, BSP leader in Assembly Shah Alam quits

UP Election 2022: While Shah Alam said he has resigned as Mayawati doesn't trust him, BSP hit back saying it's because of a case filed by a woman against Alam

Another jolt to Mayawati's BSP ahead of the upcoming UP elections. Party's leader in the UP Assembly Shah Alam on Thursday resigned as an MLA and from the party.

In his letter to the party, Alam said that Mayawati does not trust him.

Hours after he resigned, the BSP hit back, alleging that he was pressuring Mayawati to help him in a case lodged against him by a woman, who worked in his company.

Alam, however, did not disclose the party he is intended to join.

"I am mentally disturbed and I have no intention of going to any party right now. I will rest for a few days," he said.

"I have resigned from the BSP and the Assembly because there was lack of trust between our party leader Mayawati and me. When our leader does not have faith in us, then what will we do by staying in the party," Alam told PTI.

In a letter to the BSP supremo, the Mubarakpur MLA said, "You have given me ticket of MLA twice in 2012 and 2017 from Mubarakpur and I also won the elections. From 2012 till now, I have been a party loyalist and have fulfilled every responsibility given by you." "But after the meeting with you held on November 21, I realised that you are not satisfied with my work in spite of complete loyalty and sincerity," he said.

After his resignation, the BSP in a statement said the party got information from the media about the resignation.

"Its reason is that a woman, who worked in his company, has made serious allegations regarding his character and has registered a police complaint," it said.
