Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) chief Om Prakash Rajbhar on Monday said that he will meet Aam Admi party leader Arvind Kejriwal this week to firm up an alliance for the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
Smaller parties, he said, will play a major role in forming the next government in the state after the 2022 assembly polls ''I will meet Kejriwal on July 17 in presence of Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. During the meeting talks will be held to include the AAP in the Bhagidari Sankalp Morcha as an ally,'' Rajbhar told PTI.
The Morcha is a front of smaller parties led by Rajbhar.
Rajbhar said the Morcha has held initial level talks with the SP for an alliance.
When asked about the result of the meeting, Rajbhar said they held preliminary level talks.
''The aim of everyone is to stop BJP. I think he will not be having any objection to the alliance with Owaisi,'' he said.
Several Hindu nationalist groups have characterized Suheldev Rajbhar as a Dalit Hindu king who defeated a Muslim invader Ghazi Saiyyad Salar Masud, a nephew of Mahmud of Ghazni, who invaded India at the age of 16. He crossed the Indus river, and conquered Multan, Delhi, Meerut, and finally Satrikh (located in modern-day Barabanki district).
The local Raja of Bahraich and other Hindu kings formed a confederation, but an army led by Masud's father Ghazi Saiyyed Salar Sahu defeated them. In 1033, Masud himself arrived in Bahraich to check their advance.
Talking about the importance of smaller parties, the SBSP chief said, ''The BJP had to induct Anupriya Patel in the Union Cabinet and also take Sanjay Nishad with it out of compulsion''. He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to talk about a Congress-free country but now his government also has Congresspeople.
