Expelled BSP leader accuses Mayawati of selling the party’s Lok Sabha ticket for 5 crores

Mukul Upadhyay was expelled from the BSP recently amidst an open feud with his brother Ramveer Upadhyay.

Former MLC and expelled Bahujan Samaj Party leader, Mukul Upadhyay has alleged that BSP supremo Mayawati had sought money from him for giving Lok Sabha ticket, according to reports. Upadhyay has accused that the BSP supremo demanded 5 crore rupees for the party’s ticket to Aligarh.

Upadhyay made the revelation hours after he was expelled from the party. He also alleged that his brother Ramveer Upadhyay, who is a senior party leader and former power minister, plotted against him for political ambition.

He claimed that his elder brother, Ramveer Upadhyay, conspired against him as he wanted to get the Aligarh Lok Sabha ticket from BSP for his wife Seema. The expelled leader revealed that party coordinators asked him to deposit Rs. 5 crore in the party fund in lieu of the Aligarh constituency ticket.

The BSP has refuted the allegations levelled by Mukul Upadhyay. Chief Zonal Coordinator of the BSP for Agra-Aligarh division Sunil Chhittorclarified to reporters that Upadhyaya was rattled by his expulsion and was making wild and baseless allegations. The party has insisted that Upadhyay was expelled because he was trying to defect to BJP.

It is notable here that the BSP is expected to form an alliance with Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. While there were earlier speculations that Mayawati will be a part of the Mahagathbandhan under Congress leadership. However, the BSP has refrained from any alliances with Congress before the assembly elections in 4 states scheduled later this month. Instead, it has formed an alliance with Ajit Jogi’s party in Chhattisgarh.
