Uttar Pradesh BJP today said that the present Samajwadi Party government in the state would 'automatically collapse' very soon as the people have given their mandate against the Akhilesh Yadav government in the Lok Sabha elections.


"There is no need of launching the target to win 2017 assembly election as the SP government would fall much earlier due to its inner bickerings," claimed state BJP president Laxmikant Bajpai here.

He also demanded resignation of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on moral grounds as the party had won in just 37 assembly segments in this elections.

Mr Bajpai, who was also instrumental in the BJP's landslide victory in the Lok Sabha elections by winning 71 seats out of the total 80 plus two by the alliance partner Apna Dal, said Samajwadi Party was already facing trouble within the rank and file and BJP could be the only gainer.

Refuting the claim of some party leaders that if BJP came to power at the Centre then the state government would dismissed, he said.

"Mr Narendra Modi does not believe in undemocratic way of administration and would never use Article 365 of the Constitution to dislodge any government."

Criticising the Akhilesh Yadav government for bad law and order situation in the state, the state BJP president said, "people had already given their mandate against the SP government in the Lok Sabha elections." Even if now the SP government did not take any lesson then they will feel the heat once again very soon," he claimed.

Mr Bajpai made it clear that BJP always advocates for 'susasan' (Good governance) and the present SP government had failed to deliver and people were suffering due to power shortage,lack of proper drinking water and deteriorating law and order situation.

He said senior leaders of the party will sit and plan a strategy after the new government was formed at the Centre, so that people's issues could be taken up.

BJP had won in the 335 assembly segments in the state in this Lok Sabha elections while the ruling SP had won in just 37 assembly seats.

"The results of the assembly segments itself say about the real picture of the state and the performance of the ruling party," he said while demanded resignation of UP ministers and SP legislators who lost the elections.
