Breaking: AAP leader arrested two days after after quitting SP

By on February 26, 2014

A Samajwadi Party (SP) leader’s decision to desert Mulayam Singh Yadav and join the Aam Admi Party (AAP) has landed him in jail.

The incident happened in Mulayam’s Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency. Prakhar Yadav, a local leader, had left the SP two days ago and expressed his trust in Arvind Kejriwal’s party. Two years back he had embossed the UP government’s monogram and written “Uttar Pradesh Shashan” in Hindi on the number plate of his car. But he didn’t erase it even after joining the AAP.

This infuriated Mainpuri district magistrate V.K. Pawar, who allegedly called the police and ordered that Prakhar be put behind the bars for misusing the name of the UP government. A large number of AAP workers protested at the Kotwali police station to mount pressure on the local administration to release Prakhar, but he was sent to jail.

“I knew the government would punish me for leaving the SP. But the fact is that I am disillusioned of Mulayam, who is more interested in his personal gains than in the development of the state,” Prakhar said.
