Lucknow: General Secretary of HD Deve Gowda's Janata Dal (Secular), Danish Ali made a surprising move on Saturday joined Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP).
He was welcomed in the party by senior BSP leader Satish Chandra Mishra. It is likely that Danish Ali is fielded for the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh.
After joining BSP, Danish Ali said, “JD(S) doesn't have a large orga structure in UP. Despite all my efforts I could not have raised it in my 'janmabhoomi, my 'karmabhoomi'....The way in which there is a threat to constitution today, it has become essential to use our energy with a strong leadership.”
“I never asked for anything even when I was in JD(S), it was upto HD Deve Gowda ji to decide what work to assign me. I have come here after taking the blessings and permission of Deve Gowda ji. I will work wherever Behen ji assigns me,” Ali added.
Mayawati would decide his role in the party, Mishra said....
