26 Muslim members resign from Samajwadi Party as they ‘felt neglected’

Last month, 2 members of the UP Legislative Council of the Samajwadi Party had resigned sighting citing growing lack of confidence in the party leadership. Now less than a fortnight later, the party has again been hit by an exodus of a much higher magnitude.

On Wednesday earlier this week, two more MLC’s quit from the party, but appears that this was just lull before the storm as news broke on the very next day, that 26 Muslim leaders from Faizabad had resigned from the party and had sent their resignation letter to party president Akhilesh Yadav.

The reason being given for their behaviour is that they were reportedly angered after being ‘neglected’ by the party.

According to reports, Akhilesh Yadav had organised a big rally at Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh on 9th August. This also included an event for paying tribute to freedom fighter Rajbali Yadav on his death anniversary.

There Akhilesh yadav spoke about the sacrifice of Rajbali Yadav and at the same time started the fight for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections via his desh bachao desh banao rally.

This desh bachao now seems to have turned into Samajwadi party bachao due to the decision of the 26 leaders of SP’s minority wing in Faizabad to quit the party. They were reportedly miffed by the fact that none of Muslim leaders were called on to the stage in order to welcome Akhilesh Yadav.

The disgruntled Muslim leaders then in the presence of Bhadarsa’s Municipal Council Chairman Mohammed Rashid, held a meeting on Thursday and announced their resignation.

Among those resigned include senior leaders like, SP’s state secretary Mohammed Haleem, deputy district president Zakir Hussain, district secretaries Tawil Abbas, Mohammed Aslam, Wasir Haider Guddu, district spokesperson Hasan Iqbal to name a few.

In response to the mass resignation, the party’s former minister Pawan pandey has stated that they would be successful in making peace with the disgruntled leaders.
