“We have already said we will not contest in his (Shivpal’s) area and he would be made a minister after the formation of the government and given due respect,” the SP chief said.
To a question on the upcoming biennial Legislative Council polls on 12 seats, he said if the elections are held, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will have to look after its MLAs as many of them are ready to “run away”.
“I do not know how many candidates have filed nominations, but if voting is held, the BJP will have to take good care of its MLAs as many are ready to run away, knowing that they would be denied tickets in the 2022 election,” Yadav said when told that 13 nominations have been filed for 12 seats in the Upper House.
Taking a dig at the ruling party, he said the BJP gives membership on missed calls and asked for the mobile phone number which will ensure that farmers get the minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.
