In a jolt to the BSP, its legislator Anil Singh voted for BJP candidates in the Rajya Sabha polls currently underway in Uttar Pradesh. Talking to the media after casting his vote, Singh said he voted for the BJP on “antaratma ki awaaz” (inner call). “My inside asked me to vote for the BJP,” the legislator from Purwa in Unnao said. The BSP MLA, however, said he did not know what his other party legislators were up to.His move sent shock waves in the opposition camp, especially the BSP which is counting each vote to get its lone candidate Bhim Rao Ambedkar elected to the Upper House of Parliament. In a related development, SP legislator from Hardoi Nitin Agarwal also voted for the BJP candidates. His father Naresh Agarwal joined the BJP earlier this month.
Nitin told the media that the people would punish the unholy alliance between the SP and the BSP. “The SP preferred a person who entertains the society (Jaya Bachchan) over a person who serves the society (Naresh Agarwal) which is very unfortunate,” he said, predicting that all the nine BJP candidates would win.

On the other hand, Raja Bhayiya vote is also not decided, which can also upset BSP, SP alliance. In one another cleaver mover BJP’s two MLA will not vote at all, which ll bring majority number to 36 from 37, which would further enhance the chances of BJP candidate win.
