5 days ago 13

LUCKNOW: After Samajwadi Party made a dent in BJP by winning over former cabinet ministers Swami Prasad Maurya, Dara Singh Chauhan, minister of state Dharm Singh Saini and a few MLAs to its side, the saffron party is now all set to hit back.
According to sources, BJP has zeroed in on prominent faces from Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party and senior BJP leaders have also given their go ahead to their induction. "There are a few leaders who are demanding tickets. Their fate is yet to be decided," the sources added.
The biggest catch for BJP would be an SP leader from an east UP district near Ayodhya, the sources said.
The leader enjoys support of a particular community, which may impact election results in the said district.
Sources said BJP was also in talks with a prominent SP leader from Kannauj-Farrukhabad belt. Similarly, BJP is also in talks with a former cabinet minister in the BSP government. His induction is in its final stages.
BJP leaders are also in discussions with an old BSP leader who is influential among Dalits and has been working at the grassroots level for over two decades now.
BJP leaders are also believed to be in talks with a former IAS officer who, according to sources, is willing to join the saffron camp. These inductions are likely to begin from Sunday.
