It’s the day for the ruling party BJP in Uttar Pradesh where two Bahujan Samaj Party members joined it.
They were women rights activist Nida Khan and Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati’s former officer on special duty (OSD) Gangaram Ambedkar. Both have joined the BJP ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
Nida Khan, the daughter-in-law of Barelvi sect cleric Tauqueer Raza Khan’s brother, joined the BJP at its state headquarters here on Sunday in the presence of joining committee head Lakshmikant Bajpai.
Notably, Khan, who is a triple talaq victim, has been providing legal support to others as well. They were divorced under this system. Besides her, Mayawati’s former OSD and ex-national general secretary Ambedkar also joined the BJP.
Bajpai has welcomed them and said that in the present Yogi Adityanath regime the women were safe as environment of fear has ended.
