With the UP Assembly Elections over, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) creating history with 325 of 403 seats in the state, the MLAs have been asked to vacate their official residences.
In the process of it all, an incident has come to light. The lock put outside the door of former minister and MLA in Samajwadi Party (SP) government Ravidas Melhotra read ‘Modi magic’. This has stirred up the social media and the episode has also caught the attention of mainstream media.
Ravidas Melhotra contested election from the Lucknow central constituency and lost against BJP candidate Brijesh Pathak with 5094 votes.
Melhotra was one of the few SP workers who had questioned former CM Akhilesh Yadav’s decision to contest election in coalition with Congress.
