Another BJP Minister Quits, Dara Singh Chauhan Joins SP
Lucknow, January 12 (TNA) The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) suffered another jolt on Wednesday when another cabinet minister in the Yogi Adityanath government Dara Singh Chauhan quit the government and joined the Samajwadi Party (SP). He was forest minister in the outgoing government.
The development comes a day after another cabinet minister Swamy Prasad Maurya left the BJP and met SP chief Akhilesh Yadav. BJP has suffered a series of setbacks in recent days with more than five of its legislators and two ministers quitting the party fold and hitching the SP bandwagon.
