New Delhi, March 18: Taking a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for not disclosing its chief ministerial face for Uttar Pradesh, the Congress on Saturday taunted the saffron party for indulging in ‘band baaja‘ politics.
Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar said BJP was quick in forming governments in the state of Goa and Manipur where it ended up second in a split mandate.
“They formed the governments in those states where they ended up second without any delay. It is strange that they have yet not been able to select their Chief Minister for Uttar Pradesh,” he said.
Meanwhile, Babbar refused to comment on the candidature of Manoj Sinha for the coveted post and said that he would not like to comment in this regard as it is the saffron party’s internal matter.
So far Sinha has also ruled out himself of the race for the throne of Lucknow, while the media reports have confirmed him the as the BJP’s pick for UP CM.
Meanwhile, the tussle for the chair of power has escalated to levels of demonstrations in favour of the names of contention – UP BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya, firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath and Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh – outside the BJP office in Lucknow.
