Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh: BJP lawmaker Yogi Adityanath today warned the party’s central leadership that he would disassociate himself from the political unit if it continues to induct tainted leaders and ministers expelled from BSP or any other party.
Talking to mediapersons in Gorakhpur, he said the party has inducted expelled ministers from BSP who would have been implicated as “culprits of deaths of hundreds of children in Eastern UP due to encephalitis”.
He said the government’s “apathy” is mainly responsible for escalating number of encephalitis deaths in this region.
Adityanath said while BJP was fighting in and outside Parliament for an effective Lokpal Bill to curb corruption, it will not pay to induct the persons who are directly involved in it.
He said BJP is quite aware of the “irregularities” which had taken place in implementation of NRHM in Uttar Pradesh and the people who were associated with it.
Still, the party has kept its eyes closed by inducting a tainted minister from BSP cabinet expelled on the charge of corruption in NRHM.
Yogi said there was no consensus inside the party to induct such people.
“I and others who feel that way are ready to disassociate ourselves from the party if the mistake is not corrected”, the MP said.
He, however, did not give any timeframe for his future course of action.
