BJP to strengthen alliance, Yogi to revamp Cabinet

Saturday, 02 March 2024 | PNS | Lucknow/Guwahati

Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP is set to maintain good relations with its existing allies by offering them more space in Assam and accommodating them in the Uttar Pradesh Government. Sources said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath may expand his Cabinet and Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party president Om Prakash Rajbhar may be included in the Cabinet.

Similarly the ruling BJP will contest 11 Lok Sabha seats in Assam, leaving three for its allies Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL). Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma AGP will contest from Barpeta and Dhubri, while UPPL will field its candidate in Kokrajhar. The allies will support each other candidates in all the 14 constituencies.

In the Yogi Government, JP leader Dara Singh Chauhan and an MLA from Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) may also get entry in Team Yogi. It is also speculated that one Jat and one Muslim from RLD may get a place in the Yogi Government.

Sources said Yogi took the approval from the party high command on Thursday in the midst of CEC meeting.
