Lucknow: After the defeat in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, allegations and counter-allegations between the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party have continued.

In his government, Akhilesh Yadav have been changed the names of most of the schemes and institutions etc. that was on the name of Ambedkarite peoples , which is very condemnable and also shameful.
He further said, “It is not the BSP but the patron of the SP Mulayam Singh Yadav is openly touch in BJP. Who also blessed Akhilesh Yadav from BJP in the last swearing-in of BJP and has now sent a member to BJP for his work.
It is worth noting that Akhilesh Yadav reached Azamgarh on a sudden visit on Monday. He accused the BSP of colluding with the BJP. Akhilesh Yadav had also raised questions on the defeat of Bahujan Samaj Party and said, “It has happened with the connivance of BJP. That is why Samajwadi Party is now allying with Ambedkarites and not with BSP.”
