Why OBC leaders rebelling against Yogi Adityanath?

Ground Report | New Delhi: OBC leaders rebelling against Yogi; It examines the opposing voices rising within the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. In December 2019, around 100 BJP MLAs sat on a dharna against their own government in Lucknow’s assembly complex. These MLAs had accused their government of being arrogant and arbitrary.

According to The Hindu report “In connection with the attack in Ghaziabad, a case was registered against Nandkishore Gurjar, BJP MLA from Loni. Gurjar alleged that he was not given a chance to present his case. But the Yogi government had tried to show that a party MLA is not above law and order.

Now coming to the speech of Swami Prasad Maurya. On the day of Makar Sankranti, Swami Prasad Maurya took a jibe at the Yogi government and said that in the last five years the cream of power was not shared with the backward classes.

Nandkishore Gurjar and Maurya both belong to the backward caste. The backward caste voters in Uttar Pradesh constitute about 44 percent. The difference between Mauryas and Gujjars is that Gurjars are small fish whereas Mauryas are local satraps and they know the direction of the wind. Experts agree that he knows how to set his piece in political chess.

Maurya’s supporters do not consider it immoral to switch sides on the occasion of elections. Political observers believe that the quality and share of the cream of power determines political allegiance during elections.

Political scientists believe that the rubbing of power means reservation in jobs, participation in government contracts, sanction of illegal transactions, an orgy of power and the nearest police station should act on the instructions of that leader. BJP insiders in Purvanchal say that a cup of tea and a few warm words from the Chief Minister are more important than getting the work done several times. But Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath did not adopt these methods and it went against him.

A BJP man said, “He is trying to be Modi but is making a mistake that Modi has achieved this status, not imposed.” Had food at Dalit members’ house. This initiative of Yogi is being seen as damage control. But when earlier Congress leaders used to do this work, BJP used to call it ‘poverty tourism’. (OBC leaders rebelling against Yogi)

Maurya has changed the narrative of Uttar Pradesh assembly elections from religion to caste. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav had been making similar efforts for months. He was trying to forge an alliance that could include all regional parties. He has done so too. Along with the Samajwadi Party there are Rashtriya Lok Dal, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party and Mahan Dal.

Experts say Yadavs and Jatavs benefited from Mandal politics, but Mauryas, Saini, Kashyap, and Kushwaha, who are at the bottom of the OBC ranks, are still unhappy with their share.

Observers say that Jats, Yadavs, Gujjars were socially and economically stronger than other backward castes, so they got more benefit of reservation. For years Maurya, Saini, Kashyap and Kushwaha remained with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party. He hoped that Mayawati would work for him. But it is said that the Jatavs got the most power in the BSP government.

Thereafter these communities chose BJP to get their share in power. Though Yogi Adityanath tried to convert the marginalized castes in the OBCs into the Scheduled Castes, he could not overcome the legal wrangle. (OBC leaders rebelling against Yogi)

Besides, privatization was also a debatable issue under the BJP regime. These castes used to get opportunities to become teachers in the basic education of the state. But the feeling of insecurity has increased among these castes regarding reservation in future. The headmaster of a primary school in Aligarh said, “Everything has been privatized except education. Even the review of our work is in the hands of private institutions. Now people feel that if BJP comes to power then teaching work will also become private. hand and this will reduce their salary. There is also talk of retirement at the age of 50.

Maurya’s supporters say that Yogi Adityanath was imposed by the BJP in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections because he had asked an OBC to become the chief minister before the election.

Rakesh Saini, a teacher from Saharanpur, said, “We accepted Yogi ji because he belonged to the Sant Samaj. But when he started imposing Thakurism under the guise of Hindutva, our leaders got angry. Kalyan Singh was also killed under Vajpayee’s rule. Was abused.Now yogis are doing 80 vs 20 but OBCs are starting to consider these agenda as fake.

Rakesh Saini said, “Our leader Dharam Singh Saini resigned from the Yogi government and said that he had to be a victim of neglect in the government because of caste.”
