Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on Monday sacked SBSP leader Om Prakash Rajbhar from Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet for his outbursts against senior NDA partner BJP.

The governor also dismissed Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party chief OM Prakash Rajbhar from the post of Minister for Backward Class Welfare and 'Divyangjan' Empowerment in UP cabinet with immediate effect.


The action comes soon after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi recommended the state governor immediate sacking of the minister.

Speaking on the action, Rajbhar said “We welcome his decision. CM has taken a very good decision. He formed Social Justice Committee and threw its report in a dustbin. He didn't have spare time to implement it. I request him to implement Social Justice Committee's report as quickly as he took this decision today”.

As per an official spokesperson, Adityanath also recommended that all other Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) members holding the rank of minister of state be removed immediately, an official spokesperson said.





Rajbhar has often been making controversial statements against the saffron party, the latest being during the Lok Sabha election campaign when he said that BJP members should be "thrashed" with shoes.

He had recently sent a letter to the chief minister stating that he was resigning from the cabinet where he held the portfolio of backward welfare and Divyangjan welfare minister.
