APNA DAL POLITICAL PARTY
The Apna Dal Party is a regional minor political party in India with a little base among the Kurmi caste in the eastern Uttar Pradesh. Kurmi is mostly a caste in Hindu religion comprising the people with the last name Patel, naidu, Katiyar, Kulambi, Kulwadi, Kunbi, Ready, Sachan Verma, Vogallika etc who bear single caste and race. The Apna Dal has its origin from the Kurmi castes and their protests against the decision of the British government before the independence to lower down their number in the military services. Thus started the agitation leading to the coming of a new political party called Apna Dal under the supervision of Sone Lal Patel, who is also a Kurmi and her objectives following the party is to air the voice for all round development of the people belonging to Kurmi castes.
Many eminent persons of India in the higher posts of the government are from this caste so the question of this minor party is why to eye this caste differently. Apna Dal has three MLAs in the state assembly of Uttar Pradesh whish merged with Samajwadi party of Mulayam Singh Yadav owing to the severe conflict and rise of rift between its members.
