Mr. Nawab also said he had no qualms about joining hands with the BJP if such an offer came.

Samajwadi Party leader and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday accused Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) of indulging in a political corruption, after two MLCs tendered their resignation.

Reacting to the recent development in SP, party supremo Akhilesh Yadav blamed BJP for the resignations.

BJP President Amit Shah arrived in Lucknow on Saturday. The resignations pave the way for Adityanath, Maurya and at least one minister in the state cabinet to get elected as MLCs. "People are watching everything". I am a disciple of late Prime Minister Chandrashekhar, and I could not compromise with the issue of the nation.

Bukkal Nawab, who is also a founder of Rashtriya Shia Samaj and Yashwant Singh resigned as MLCs.

Besides Maurya, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, Transport Minister Swatantra Deo Singh and Minister of State for Science and Technology are required to become a member of either of the two Houses by 18 September. This comes close to reports that suggest that SP member and MLC Yashwant Singh has also quit the party.

THR's report also suggested that Warner Bros. was looking for a way to transition from the Affleck Batman to another Batman . If Batman and Wonder Woman weren't enough, Marvel Studios is primed to take center stage in Hall H on Saturday evening.

"I will talk to him (Nawab), if he has not been kept hostage and ask him as to why he is not giving the ruling BJP leaders a chance to face the public (election)".

"BJP people can't muster courage to go to the people". Earlier when talking about the proposed outfit, Shivpal Yadav had said: "Humne ek mauka diya hai ki pura pariwar ikattha ho aur Netaji ko fir se samman mile". "Bahut mithi thi sewai".

BSP chief Mayawati also cried foul and charged the BJP with misusing power and state machinery to target Opposition parties and their legislators. "He will also interact with various district presidents and district in-charges", UP BJP spokesperson Chandramohan said on Thursday.

"Instead of kneeling before the BJP, they should have have fought back against the terror and oppression of the BJP government", she said adding that "If you don't fight back, the BJP will get emboldened as they have now tasted blood".
