Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) MP Ritesh Pandey on Sunday resigned from the party and joined BJP. He was one of the eight MPs who was surprised by PM Modi for the lunch in the Parliament canteen.

Pandey has said that his party does not need him any more as he has not been called for any meetings for a long time. He further alleged that the BSP supremo Mayawati has also not spoken to him for a long time.

The development comes days after Pandey met the Prime Minister over lunch, along with seven other opposition MPs in the Parliament canteen. After the lunch, he took to X and shared the picture with PM Modi and said it was truly an honour to be invited by PM Modi for lunch and learn how he used his insights from the 2001 Bhuj Earthquake to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. He thanked Modi for having them over. What an insightful discussion, he wrote.

Sharing his resignation on X, he wrote, “For a long time, neither am I being called to attend party meetings nor has the party leadership spoken to me. I made numerous efforts to get in touch with and meet you (Mayawati) and the top leadership of the party but it did not yield any result,” Pandey added in the resignation letter.

During this time, Pandey continuously met workers and supporters of other parties in his area and was also involved in various works going on in the constituency. Hence, he has come to the conclusion that the party does not need his service and presence, he further added.

On February 9, PM Modi joined eight MPs for a surprise lunch in the Parliament canteen. The video of their lunch went viral on the social media platforms.

Taking MPs for a surprise lunch, PM Modi told them he wanted to take them out as a punishment. Eight MPs cutting across party lines were told that PM Modi wants to meet them in the Parliament.

Union Minister L Murugan, senior Lok Sabha MP NK Prema Chandran, BJD Rajya Sabha MP Sasmit Batra, TDP MP Ram Mohan Naidu, BSP MP Ritesh Pandey, BJP’s Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal and BJP’s Nagaland S Phangnon Konyak were amongst the MPs.

According to reports, the Yogi’s convoy, while returning from Lucknow airport, met with an accident in Arjunganj.

As many as 11 people were injured in the incident including five police personnel.

The Lucknow Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Upendra Agrawal, while speaking about the incident, said that a vehicle in UP CM Adityanath’s convoy was met with an accident in Lucknow.

He further said that, in an investigation, it was found that there was a dog, dead or alive, was yet to be determined.

But the vehicle just behind the interceptor vehicle ran over the dog and lost control, Agrawal further informed. This resulted in the collision of vehicles. Five police personnel and six civilians have been injured, the police officer told reporters.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav brought the attention of the government and how cattle menace is a real problem in the state.

Taking to X, he said that the stray cattle menace in UP is a dangerous truth and the BJP government should have taken a lesson from this incident.

The convoy of the chief minister himself met with an accident today due to the problem of stray animals not being taken seriously, Yadav said. Many people have been injured. This is sad as well as worrying, Yadav added.

The former CM also said that the problem of stray animals has become a dangerous truth of UP. Further, it’s about the safety of the people. The BJP should take a lesson from this incident, he asserted.

The Uttar Pradesh Assembly on Saturday passed the Lift and Escalator Bill, 2024 and Uttar Pradesh Lokayukta and Up-Lokayukta (Amendment) Bill, 2024.

According to Bill, registration will be mandatory for the installation of lifts and escalators in the state.

In the Lokayukta and Up-Lokayukta Bill, a provision has been made to reduce the tenure of the anti-corruption ombudsman from eight years to five years.

Speaking on the Lift and Escalator Bill, Energy Minister Arvind Kumar Sharma cited an incident that took place in Noida, in which MLAs Dhirendra Singh and Pankaj Singh had demanded a law for lifts and escalators.

Sharma further informed that apart from a mandatory registration for installing lifts and escalators in public, the concerned person has to inform the authority immediately in case of an accident. A provision has also been made for insurance and compensation.

The Bill, which will be an Act now, seeks to get approval from the Energy Department for the installation of lifts and escalators. The Bill makes it mandatory for the agencies, that manufacture, install lifts and escalators, and maintain them, to register with the Director of Electrical Safety.

The Bill further directed that the approval must be renewed every five years and also have to be tested every year. A fee of Rs 1,500 needs to be deposited for the same.

A fine will be imposed on the concerned person If they disobey the orders and ignore to do so.

Maharashtra, Gujarat, West Bengal and Haryana already have laws for installing lifts but there was no such law for it in UP, said Sharma while describing the Bill as the need of the hour.

The implementation of the Bill will not only curb the accident but also strengthen the system.

While speaking on the Bill, the BJP member Dhirender Singh thanked Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the Energy Minister Sharma for making it possible. He said the Bill will prove to be a milestone.
