The untouched within the line is the announcement by way of the UP Congress Committee (UPCC) that its prominent Ajay Rai would discuss with Sitapur prison to satisfy SP’s Muslim face AzamKhan on Thursday.The go won’t advance unwell smartly with the SP management, specifically as Azam’s personal birthday celebration leaders have been until now restricted to issuing statements within the media in help of him.

Day Azam is lodged in Sitapur prison, spouse Tazeen Fatima in Rampur prison and son Abdullah in Hardoi prison.
The advance is certain to generate some heartburn between SP and Congress in UP.

Now the Congress leaders will go to Sitapur amid reports that they have been denied permission to meet him. This explains that the move is an election gimmick by the Congress,” stated a senior SP chief.
Akhilesh although welcomed political leaders going to satisfy Azam, he puzzled the hush of Congress Birthday party when ‘fake instances have been being slapped on him’. “Waise to sabko Azam Khan se milna chahiye. Lekin us samay Congress ke neta kahan the jab unko (Azam) ko farzi case mein phasaya jaa raha tha … aur Congress ke neta bhi phasane mein lage hue the (People should go and meet Azam Khan.

The programme will finish on November 26, celebrated as Charter Era and targets to the touch 100,000 Dalit households in a span of 45 days thru 4,000 ‘evening choupals’ to be held around the condition.
In political circles the go is being obvious as Congress birthday celebration’s struggle to achieve out to the Muslims and Dalits specifically in West UP – the karmbhoomi of Azam Khan and his public. If all is going smartly with the INDIA bloc, Congress plans to tie arms with the Rashtriya Lok Dal for the 2024 polls in West UP. As Rampur and adjacent districts have a large Muslim family, the birthday celebration desires to re-establish itself because the tone of the Muslims in electoral politics on the nationwide stage within the run-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
Political eyewitnesses are of the view that Congress birthday celebration’s ‘negative’ to an alliance with SP for meeting polls in MP won’t have came about on the condition stage itself, because it used to be being ‘made to look’. For them, Congress birthday celebration’s posturing that their MP ballot incharge Kamal Nath took this sort of daring choice all by way of himself used to be “surprising”.
Analysts really feel the SP had worn the alliance talks in MP to check waters when it comes to Congress birthday celebration’s posturing for the 2024 polls.
The fiasco that prevailed has come as a blessing in conceal for SP. “If any roadblock surfaces during negotiations with the Congress for Lok Sabha polls, the perception that SP has been more committed towards the alliance will weigh in its favour,” stated an analyst.
