Sanjay Nishad, an ally of the BJP, has expressed disappointment over his son and MP Praveen Nishad not being included in the Union cabinet after the reshuffle.

He asked if Anupriya Patel of the Apna Dal (Sonelal) can be included in the Union Council of Ministers, why can’t Praveen Nishad.

“If Anupriya Patel of Apna Dal (Sonelal) could get a place in the council of ministers, then why MP Praveen Nishad can’t? The people of Nishad community are already ditching the BJP and if the party does not rectify its mistakes, it will face the consequences in the upcoming assembly poll,” the Nischad Party leader was quoted as saying by PTI
He said Praveen Nishad enjoys popularity in over 160 seats whereas “Anupriya Patel in just a few (assembly) seats”.

He added that he has conveyed his views to BJP president JP Nadda and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

“It is their turn to decide. However, I have full faith in them that they will take care of Praveen Nishad,” he said.

At present, the NISHAD (Nirbal Indian Shoshit Hamara Aam Dal) Party has one MLA in the UP Legislative Assembly.

Sanjay Nishad’s son Praveen is an MP from Sant Kabir Nagar. Praveen Nishad had won the Gorakhpur seat in a bypoll as the Samajwadi Party candidate and he was supported by the BSP, under the grand alliance between the two parties.
