Amit Shah eats lunch at OBC party worker’s house as BJP woos Yadavs

BJP chief Amit Shah’s lunch on Sunday at a booth-level worker who belongs to the Other Backward Castes (OBC) group in Lucknow effectively conveyed the party’s continued focus on politically dominant OBCs.

Until Sunday morning, there were speculations that Shah would have lunch at a Dalit party workers’ residence – something he regularly had in the run up to the 2017 UP assembly polls.

“Shah wants to disturb the arithmetic by rattling SP with defections and resignations. The idea is to confuse the SP and BSP to the extent that their leadership doesn’t know who is with them and who isn’t,” a BJP leader told HT.

During his meetings that he separately held with ministers and party workers, Shah made it clear that the party won’t hesitate to welcome ‘big’ leaders from other parties into the BJP.

The BJP is closely watching Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav’s uncle Shivpal Yadav’s next move as the two SP MLCs who resigned on Saturday to help the BJP are from Shivpal faction. More resignations are expected from the SP as Shivpal Yadav has openly warned Akhilesh to hand over the party’s reins to his father Mulayam Singh Yadav or be ready to face the ‘consequences.’ There is a buzz about Shivpal, who met his brother and SP patron Mulayam in Delhi on Sunday, floating his own ‘secular morcha’ to support the BJP.

Saffron strategists are also tuned into another possibility of Shivpal joining Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar’s JD (U) and being made the party’s UP chief.
