<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Covid-19 guidelines given by the Election Commission seem to have gone for a toss as many people thronged the ‘virtual rally’ at the ceremony for inducting Maurya and his supporters in the Samajwadi Party.&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Maurya had resigned from the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday citing reasons that the government did not address the issues of lower castes and backward classes. </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">"Due to the attitude of gross neglect towards Dalits, backwards, farmers, unemployed youth and small and medium-sized traders, I am resigning from the council of ministers of Yogi (Adityanath) of UP," he had tweeted.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Along with Maurya, three other MLAs &mdash;Tilhar MLA Roshan Lal Verma, Bilhaur MLA Bhagwati Prasad Sagar and Tindwari MLA Brajesh Prajapati&nbsp; &mdash; also submitted their resignation.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">On the same day, minutes after the resignation, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav had tweeted a photo of him with Maurya welcoming him to his party. "I warmly welcome Swami Prasad Maurya, a leader who fights for social justice and equality, and all his supporters. There will be a revolution in social justice. Change is coming in 2022," Akhilesh had tweeted.</span></p>

He had won the Padrauna seat in the Kushinagar district in 2017 on BJP&rsquo;s ticket.
