A day after Uttar Pradesh BJP president Mahendra Nath Pandey asked leaders of allies to exercise "restraint" in their language, SBSP leader and senior minister Om Prakash Rajbhar said today that he would continue to raise his voice for the welfare of backward classes and Dalits while being in the government.
"We will continue to fight for the rights of Dalits and backward classes while being in the government...we will continue to tell the government about it," Rajbhar, who heads the Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP), told PTI.
He, however, stressed that there would not be any parting of ways with the BJP.
"It just shows the lack of understanding of the person who is giving such a statement...who has stopped him from taking action," Rajbhar said when asked to comment on Pandey's advice to NDA constituents to practise "restraint" in their language.
"We request the minister to fulfil his duties and practise restraint in his language...the right decision will be taken at the right time," Pandey had said when asked to comment on Rajbhar's continued outbursts against the Yogi Adityanath government.
"Is it a crime to fight for the backward classes and most backward classes who have been deprived of their rights under different schemes...even if it is so I will continue to do it," he reiterated.
"It is the aim of our party to ensure good education to the children of the poor," he said.
Asked if the issues raised by him had been resolved, he said it could be said only when a solution to them had been found.
To a question on what would be his future course of action, he ruled out any parting of ways with the BJP. "We will be with the BJP till 2024..it is like a fight among brothers," he stressed.
