LUCKNOW: What seems to be yet another political coup after the developments in Bihar and Gujarat, three MLCs- two from the Samajwadi Party (SP) and one from Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP)- resigned from council membership leading to speculation that all of them would be joining the BJP and would subsequently be compensated for the same later on.The genesis of the speculation is said to be the timing of the three MLCs. Appreciating the work of Yogi Adityanath, Nawab said that he is doing a good job and at least there hasn't been any scam yet.

Reports of growing tension between Deputy Chief Minister Maurya, also the state BJP chief, and Chief Minister Adityanath is also likely to come up. Yashwant is a close aide of independent legislator from Kunda, Raghuraj Pratap Singh alias "Raja Bhaiyya".

Reacting to resignations of his MLCs, Akhilesh Yadav accused BJP of poaching his party's Legislative Council members. He has said that he had been feeling "suffocated" since the last one year. "People are watching everything", said.

"I will talk to him (Nawab), if he has not been kept hostage and ask him as to why he is not giving the ruling BJP leaders a chance to face the public (election)". I dare them to go to the people and get elected. She said the BJP's "hunger for power" had now transformed into a "lust".

Mr. Maurya said the resignations were the "personal matter" of SP leaders.
