Arrest Warrant Issued Against Former BJP Leader Swami Prasad Maurya

Aday after UP Minister Swami Prasad Maurya quit the BJP, an arrest warrant was issued against him in a seven-year-old case. The arrest warrant is related to a 2014 case in which Maurya allegedly made objectionable remarks about deities. The matter will be heard on January 24 by a special MP-MLA court.

Uttar Pradesh minister Swami Prasad Maurya posted his resignation letter on Twitter on Tuesday. In his letter, he alleged negligence towards Dalits, farmers, small and medium scale businesses and unemployed youths by the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh.

A few minutes after Swami Prasad Maurya posted his resignation letter on social media, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav tweeted a photograph with the leader and welcomed him to his party.

“Maurya has always stood for justice and is a well-known face among the masses. I welcome him and all the other leaders, workers and supporters into the Samajwadi party,” Yadav said.

After Uttar Pradesh labour minister Swami Prasad Maurya resigned from the Cabinet and the BJP on Tuesday, three other BJP MLAs in the state followed suit and quit the party.

This includes Tilhar MLA Roshan Lal Verma, Bilhaur MLA Bhagwati Prasad Sagar and Tindwari MLA Brajesh Prajapati. Like Swami Prasad Maurya, Roshan Lal Verma too has decided to join the Samajwadi Party ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election to be held in February and March this year.
