BSP Chief Announces Nephew Akash Anand As Political Successor

New Delhi: The chief of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Mayawati, has named her nephew Akash Anand, 28, as her political successor. He is the national coordinator of the party.

Akash Anand was a prominent face during Mayawati’s Lok Sabha election campaign in 2019.

The veteran leader announced a key party meet today which was attended by the party office bearers.

Mayawati had appointed her brother Anand Kumar national vice president of the party in 2019 and nephew Akash was made a national coordinator.

Before 2019, Akash Anand was seen at multiple BSP events and also accompanied his aunt on the 2017 Uttar Pradesh state poll campaign.

The development comes a day after Lok Sabha MP Danish Ali, who recently became a target of an unsavoury exchange on the floor of the house, was suspended from the BSP after he walked out of Lok Sabha proceedings on Friday along with other opposition members to protest against the motion to expel Trinamool Congress’ Mahua Moitra for “unethical conduct”.
