Lucknow, Dec 6 (IBNS): The MP from Uttar Pradesh's Bahraich, BJP's Savitribai Phule, has resigned from the party saying the BJP was "trying to create divisions in the society".

"Left the BJP because its governments are unleashing a great conspiracy against Dalits and their rights. Will hold a mega rally in Lucknow on January 23," she told News18. Phule has been critical of her party over several issues, particularly on those related to Dalits.

Phule had targeted the state's Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s fon Wednesday or his comments on the caste of Hanuman.

“If he (Yogi Adityanath) really loves Dalits then he should love them more than he loves Lord Hanuman. Has he ever embraced any Dalit? He might have been eating out dinner at Dalit households, but the cook was not Dalit. There are Assembly polls and they don’t have any issue left so they are terming Hanuman Ji as Dalit. They just want to take Dalit votes but now Dalits, backwards and Tribals of the country has now understood their dhong,” she said.

Speaking at a rally in Rajasthan, Yogi had said, "Lord Hanuman was a forest dweller, deprived and a Dalit. Bajrang Bali worked to connect all Indian communities together, from north to south and east to west."

Phule has been openly critical of the BJP's "dinner-with-dalits" outreach exercise.
