LUCKNOW: Amid complaints by some BJP MPs that their problems are not being heard by the UP government, NDA ally SBSP today accused Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath of not following “coalition dharma” and said it felt “ignored” by him.

“I will have detailed discussions with BJP president Amit Shah on various issues when he visits Lucknow on April 10 and then decide my party’s course of action,” SBSP leader and UP cabinet minister Om Prakash Rajbhar told media persons here.

He said the SBSP would rethink about the alliance if Shah did not agree on the issues raised by the party.

Attacking the UP chief minister, Rajbhar said, “Why are MPs and MLAs angry with the (Adityanath) government? Why are they going to Delhi to convey their grievances? Why are the MLAs angry and are sitting on protests?” About the recent appointments made in the UP secondary education board, he said, “The BJP’s slogan of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas’ is not being implemented in letter and spirit as relatives of senior BJP leaders from upper caste have been appointed.

Now tell me where will the people from backward castes and scheduled castes will go?” “At meetings of the UP Cabinet, everyone’s views are heard but the decision is taken by just four-five people.

If we have voted for you, then we should also have a say,” he said.
