Yes to uncle Shivpal, but no to major parties: Akhilesh Yadav reveals his probable plans for 2022 elections – india news


Without naming the Congress and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP), Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said his party won’t be having a look at alliance with any major party in 2022 meeting elections while doors are open for smaller parties. Akhilesh is able to bury the hatchet with estranged uncle Shivpal Yadav and his Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party. And whether the SP comes to power, Shivpal’s party will have representation in the cabinet, Akhilesh said.

“We can adjust that party too. Jaswantnagar is his (Shivpal Yadav’s) seat and the Samajwadi Party vacated the seat for him. In the coming times, we can make their leader a cabinet minister, and what other adjustment is needed?” Akhilesh said, as quoted by PYI.

Shivpal Yadav, the estranged uncle of Akhilesh Yadav, used to be elected from the Jaswantnagar meeting constituency in the 2017 state elections. He later floated a new political party, Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia), and contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on its symbol from Firozabad.

“When the elections are contested by the election officers, superintendents of police, extra district magistrates, SHOs and police jawans, who will win then. The BJP used to be not contesting the bypolls but the officials of its government,” Akhilesh said on the performance of his party in the bypolls in the state.

In 2017, SP and Congress announced an alliance in the meeting election. BJP had won 312 seats, while the Congress won seven seats and the SP won 47 seats.
