According to certain reports, Beni might take a U-turn and return to the Samajwadi Party, which itself is grappling and facing crisis after putting up a poor show in the general elections. JPN/Bureau
Though things are yet to emerge clearly, it’s being said that the reason behind Beni’s pesky attitude is due to Congress extending a ‘supporting hand’ towards his opponents. The senior leaders of the party have however overruled the speculations and termed it as a ‘conspiracy’.
Around eight years ago, Beni left Samajwadi Party due to differences with Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Later, in 2007, Beni floated his own party and competed in the Assembly elections but lost miserably. He subsequently joined the Congress and got elected as MP and became a Union Minister.
In 2012 Assembly elections, on the recommendation of Beni, several people were allotted tickets to contest for the elections but sadly results came out to be disappointing, after which Beni’s opponents starting question his credibility in the party.
In the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, the Congress high command did not pay much heed to Beni’s recommendations and handed over the responsibility of central leadership to PL Punia of National Commission for Scheduled Castes.
As of now, Beni’s prime focus is on the Assembly elections and he has already started pulling up his socks.
Tirades against SP to stop
On being questioned whether he will target SP anymore, Beni said that he now opts for silence as it’s better to keep mum.
Meanwhile, overruling all the rumors regarding ditching Congress and re-joining Samajwadi Party, the former Union minister said that Congress has given him a lot of respect and it is not in his nature to leave anyone when they need him the most.
Beni further added that he did not even leave Mulayam when he needed him.
According to people close to Beni, he has never ridiculed any move of Akhilesh and now has decided to never target Mulayam Singh Yadav.
According to certain reports, Beni might take a U-turn and return to the Samajwadi Party, which itself is grappling and facing crisis after putting up a poor show in the general elections.
