Lucknow: BSP supremo Mayawati has once again changed the leader of the party in Lok Sabha and has named BSP MP Ritesh Pandey as the new leader, replacing Amroha MP Kunwar Danish Ali.
Mayawati tweeted on Monday and said the decision was taken to maintain the ‘social cohesion’ in the party as both BSP State chief Munkad Ali and LOP in Lok Sabha Danish Ali were from the same community.
“Keeping in view the fact that the leader of party in Lok Sabha and Party UP Chief were from the same community, and to maintain a social balance a small change has been made.
BSP leader Ritesh Pandey will be the leader of party in Lok Sabha.
