Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on Monday accepted Yogi Adityanath’s request and dismissed Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar from the post of Minister for Backward Class Welfare and 'Divyangjan' empowerment in UP cabinet with immediate effect.

Earlier on Monday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath wrote to state Governor Ram Naik requesting him to immediately dismiss OP Rajbhar from the state cabinet.

 

Rajbhar, a minister for backward class welfare and 'divyangjan' empowerment had earlier resigned from the cabinet but his resignation was not accepted.

Informing about the same, office of Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh tweeted, "Today UP CM Yogi Adityanath has written a letter to Governor and have requested him for immediate dismissal of Backward Welfare Minister Om Prakash Rajbhar from the cabinet."

Adityanath also recommended that all other Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) members holding the rank of minister of state be removed immediately, an official spokesperson said here.       

 

Rajbhar who is also the chief of Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), had on May 1 stated that he has resigned as a cabinet minister from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath government over the seat-sharing agreement with the BJP.

"I had resigned on the night of April 13 from the post of state minister when they (BJP) said that you have to contest on our symbol. I told them I will contest from only one seat but from my own party. However, they did not agree to that either. Following which, I immediately resigned but they did not accept my resignation," said OP Rajbhar while speaking to media persons here.

 

SBSP is an ally of the BJP since 2017.

Earlier on April 16, Rajbhar had announced that his party will go 'solo' in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. He had alleged that the BJP wanted to "eliminate" the SBSP as it did not give them a single ticket.
