Why Samajwadi Party is supporting BJP on Lalit Modi issue?

A senior member and brother of SP Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, supported Sushma Swaraj on the Lalit Modi issue, saying that it is unnecessarily being highlighted. “Minister has just acted on humanitarian grounds, what’s the issue?” asked he. People were surprised by this show of camaraderie, Give the bitter history of finger pointing even on trivial issues. 

Well, there is a deep reason behind this. Here’s it. 

UP Govt. is under fire after a Journalist was burnt alive, allegedly by policemen at the behest of a minister in UP Govt. This has brought already precarious law and order situation under the scanner. In current scenario of politically intrusive Governor House (read Central Govt.), Samajwadi Party is finding itself in deep trouble. 

Arresting the minister is feared to lose votes for SP. Not doing anything is also not an option given international exposure that journalist’s murder is invoking. Many are surprised by silence of Indian media on this serious issue with people accusing media to be bought. 

The ball is now all in Modi’s court. Given that he hasn’t tweeted yet on the issue, hints at him deliberately being silent. Govt needs SP’s help in Rajya Sabha and all this camaraderie boils down to this quid pro quo. 

SP is helping out BJP just like it has helped Congress innumerable times in the past. Also CBI is now with BJP. So no surprises!
