CLAIMING THAT the VP Singh-led Jan Morcha would form the next government in the State, Rashtriya Kranti Party (RKP) president and MP, Dr Swami Sacchidanand Hari Sakshi alias Sakshiji Maharaj, today claimed that the BJP was breathing its last and would not be able to win even 40 seats in the coming Vidhan Sabha elections.
Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Sakshiji, once a close associate of former Chief Minister Kalyan Singh, who hijacked the RKP when Kalyan rejoined the BJP, said that Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav was the ‘agent’ of a few selected industrialists and the entire State, including huge chunks of land of poor farmers, was being gifted away for a song to close friends of top Samajwadi Party leaders.
He claimed that Kalyan Singh himself was fully convinced that the BJP was finished in the State and he had made it clear even to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee that the party was not in a position to win even 40 seats in the Vidhan Sabha elections. Sakshiji alleged that there was a secret understanding between Mulayam Singh and Kalyan Singh as both were serving each other’s political interests.
He accused Mulayam Singh Yadav of giving shelter to hardcore criminals and mafia dons and termed the prevailing law and order situation in the State as alarming.
Sakshiji said that the doors of the Jan Morcha were still open for Uma Bharti, who had miserably failed to mobilise any support from any corner for her new political outfit. Ayodhya was no more an issue and Uma Bharti should now talk about basic needs of people liker water and power instead of doing politics of religion, caste and community, he said.
Earlier, an eight-point resolution was passed at the thinly attended conference of the RKP office-bearers at Gandhi Bhavan.
The resolutions passed unanimously included that on price-rise, increasing terrorism, law and order, farmers’ pitiable condition, rampant corruption and against proposed Dadri Power project in which 2500 acres of farmers’ land was acquired for a pittance and given to the Reliance.
