In a video message, Sanjay Nishad said that the Nishad community wields influence in over 160 Assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh.
Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBSP) president Om Prakash Rajbhar, who was with the BJP earlier, is now trying to stitch in a grand alliance of smaller parties to challenge the BJP, SP and BSP in Uttar Pradesh.
The Nishad Party, an ally of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, has demanded that its chief Sanjay Nishad be made a deputy chief minister if the alliance wins the assembly election next year.
Ahead of Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, Nishad Party president Sanjay Nishad is seeking the post of Deputy Chief Minister in the state if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants an alliance to work out.
