UP minister Om Prakash Rajbhar on Monday softened his stance after meeting chief minister Yogi Adityanath, and decided not to hold dharna against Ghazipur DM.
Rajbhar said out of 19 demands, the chief minister has accepted 17 of it, therefore, he would not hold any dharna against the District Magistrate.
Earlier, he had threatened to resign if his demand for transferring the Ghazipur district magistrate was not met immediately.
Om Prakash Rajbhar had said that he had spoken to him but nothing had been done.
"If my demand is not met, I will resign from the government. What is the use of remaining in the government if a minister is not heard," Rajbhar had said. He is national president of the Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party (SBJP), a BJP ally that won four assembly seats in the 403-member House.
The backward and handicapped welfare minister had earlier announced he would sit on dharna in Ghazipur on Tuesday to press for his demand for DM Sanjay Kumar Khatri's transfer.
