Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) [India], July 29 (ANI): Samajwadi Party leader Bukkal Nawab has resigned from the party, citing former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and party President Akhilesh Yadav's confrontation with his father and former chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, here on Saturday. "I am feeling very suffocated since last one-year. It is clear that when he (Akhilesh) is not with his own father then how can he be with the people," Nawab told ANI. He added that it doesn't feel right while writing party's name as Samajwadi Party, rather they should call it 'Samajwadi Akhaada', since it has become an arena now. Praising current UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's work he said, "Bharatiya Janata Party is doing good work and PM Modi has given a good slogan of 'Sabka sath, sabka vikas'. If they invite, then I might go with BJP. Yogi is also doing a good job in the state; at least there has not been any scam yet." He further said, "More people may resign from the party soon." Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party MLC Yashwant Sinha has also resigned. (ANI)
