The battle is on for Brahmin voices ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. After the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is also trying to seduce the Brahmin camp.
Earlier, BSP chairman Mayawati announced that the party would hold Brahmin conventions in Uttar Pradesh. From now on, ministers, deputies, deputies and officials of the BJP will visit temples to seek blessings from saints and religious leaders.
At a meeting of the UP BJP working committee, it was decided that on July 24 Guru Purnima, BJP leaders and people in business would visit all monasteries and temples.
UP Minister Brijesh Pathak told India Today TV: “The BJP has always respected the gurus and through this we want to convey our greetings to the community.” He added that those who politicize the issue should rethink. For the BJP, the Saints are of utmost importance. “
Tackling Mayawati, BJP spokesman Ashok Pandey said the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also tried to court the Brahmins earlier, but only used them for political achievements . He said the Brahmins know where to stay and who can preserve their benefits.
Casting doubts on Brahmin policy, Samajwadi party leader Anurag Bhadauria said that if the BJP had been working for the past four years, it would not have to meet saints or run programs focused on them. castes now.
“People are ready to take back the Samajwadi party in 2022,” he added.
Amarnath Mishra, president of ‘Brahmin Sansad’, said the Brahmin community is not a vote bank but a deciding factor.
He said none of the parties had prioritized community benefits and were now hosting conferences for political gain. He said that all this would have no influence on the Brahmins.
