Bhim Army Chief Chandrashekhar Azad is all set to contest against UP CM Yogi Adityanath from Gorakhpur Sadar seat, Azad informed through his Twitter account.

The upcoming election will be first assembly election for UP CM Yogi Adityanath and Azad Samaj Party chief as well.

Bhim Army chief said in a tweet, “Thank you very much. I have fought for last 5 years also. I will still fight. Jai Bhim, Jai Mandal.”

In 2021, Azad had said, “It is not important for me to win a place in the UP assembly. It is important for me that Yogi Adityanath should not get to be the assembly. So, I will contest from wherever he contests.”

Earlier, Bhim Army had announced that it will fight upcoming UP elections alone after it could not reach to mutual agreement with Samajwadi Party.

“After all the discussions, in the end, I felt that Akhilesh Yadav does not want Dalits in this alliance, he just wants Dalit vote bank. He humiliated the people of Bahujan Samaj, I tried hard but the alliance could not happen”, Azad said when his party could not form alliance with the SP.

Azad’s Azad Samaj Party is fielding over 30 seats across Uttar Pradesh. The party was in talk with Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav over seat sharing but it failed.

In Gorakhpur, now the battle is between two ideologies— Brahmanism that Yogi holds up by his heart and second being Samajwadi ideology.

Samajwadi Party is yet to declare its candidate list.

In Uttar Pradesh, elections will start from February 10, and will take place in seven phases. Results will be declared on March 10.
