Ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, the state witnessed a new political alliance on Saturday, January 22, in form of the Bhagidari Parivartan Morcha. All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi announced his coalition with Babu Singh Kushwaha and Bharat Mukti Morcha. 

While addressing a press conference, Owaisi claimed that his alliance will contest on all 403 seats and if they come into power, the state will have two chief ministers and three deputy chief ministers.

Taking it to Twitter, AIMIM wrote that Barrister Asaduddin Owaisi held a press conference with Babu Singh Kushwaha and Waman Meshram in Lucknow on Saturday. AIMIM will participate in the Assembly elections under the Bhagidari Parivartan Morcha which will contest on all 403 seats, the party informed.

On being asked whether the alliance was formed out of compulsion, Babu Singh Kushwaha dismissed the claim and said that they will work for the betterment of backward and minority communities. "We worked for Dalit, backward and minority community for a long time," he said.
