However, he lost in the Assembly elections. The leader quit BSP in 2016 after a long stint internally in the party. A row broke out between Maurya and BSP chief Mayawati in a press conference on the same day after she thanked Maurya for doing courtesy on the party for leaving on his own, otherwise, he was about to be expelled for promoting dynastic politics within BSP. A few months later, Maurya announced the formation of his organizational unit called Loktantrik Bahujan Manch. He had been a Member of the legislative assembly for 5 terms, leader of the house, and leader of the opposition. He served as the Cabinet Minister for Labour, Employment, and Co-ordination under the Yogi Adityanath- led UP ministry. Ahead of the 2022 polls in Uttar Pradesh, Maurya resigned from his post of the cabinet minister of the Yogi Adityanath ministry and as well as from BJP just a month before the assembly elections. He said that BJP has done injustice to almost all sections of society. He then joined Akhilesh Yadav's Samajwadi Party.
