UP Election 2017: Minister Vijay Mishra crosses over and joins BSP, calls SP 'anti-Brahmin'

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh minister for Religious Endowment Vijay Kumar Mishra on Thursday joined Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), alleging that the ruling Samajwadi Party was 'anti-Brahmin'.

"SP is anti-Brahmin. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is surrounded by sycophants," he said while joining BSP in the presence of its national general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra. Mishra had won the 2012 Assembly polls from Ghazipur seat but was denied SP ticket this time.
SP has fielded Rajesh Khushwaha from the seat.

Ghazipur will go to polls in the last of the seven-phase election on 8 March. Nomination process for the last phase ended on Thursday. Mishra later announced that he has submitted his resignation from the Akhilesh Yadav's cabinet.
