New Delhi. All the PSP candidates will also contest the assembly elections on the symbol of Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party. In the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party chief Shivpal Yadav will not contest the election on the symbol of his party. This effort has been made to avoid any differences between the workers of both the parties. Both the parties believe that if there is any deficiency in showing unity then it is not possible to fight a party like BJP. According to media reports, the main reason for this strategy decided between the two parties is not to allow splitting of votes.
Recently, after a meeting between the SP and its alliance partners, it has been decided that Shivpal Yadav’s party will contest on six seats. According to sources, six seats have been given to Shivpal Yadav. Shivpal Yadav’s son Aditya Yadav may contest from Jaswantnagar. Jaswant Nagar is the traditional seat of Shivpal Yadav and he has been winning elections continuously from there. Most of the leaders of Shivpal Yadav’s party have been in the Samajwadi Party earlier and many of them have contested elections on the cycle symbol. Therefore, contesting on the election symbol of Shivpal Yadav’s party PSP will also affect the unity seen between the leaders of both the parties.
The parties with which Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party has forged an alliance for the assembly elections include Om Prakash Rajbhar’s Subhaspa, Jayant Chaudhary’s RLD, Sanjay Chauhan’s People’s Party, Keshav Maurya’s Mahan Dal, Krishna Patel’s Apna Dal Kamrawadi, NCP And TMC is also included. Apart from this, Shivpal Yadav can also field his candidates from Gunnaur, Bhojpur, Jasrana, Mubarakpur and Ghazipur Sadar. Let us inform that Shivpal Yadav, who was a minister in the Akhilesh government, had formed the Progressive Samajwadi Party in 2018 due to a family dispute.
