New Delhi/Mamata Tripathi. After the third phase of voting in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav has made uncle Shivpal Singh Yadav the star campaigner of the party. Not only this, helicopter is also being given to uncle Shivpal so that he can campaign in the remaining four phases. What such reasons have arisen that Akhilesh Yadav had to make Chacha Shivpal a star campaigner. Let us tell you the inside thing about this…
In October 2016, there was a fight between uncle and nephew over the supremacy in the party, which was seen by the whole world. After that Shivpal Singh Yadav formed the Progressive Samajwadi Party before the 2017 assembly elections. But in the 2022 elections, Shivpal Singh Yadav again joined hands with the nephew and joined the SP alliance. However, Akhilesh gave only one seat to Shivpal Yadav’s party, due to which all the office-bearers of PSP resigned collectively.
Seeing their own political future, many leaders joined different parties like from Etawah Sadar. Member of parliament And MLA Raghuraj Singh Shakya and Lucknow’s big Brahmin leader Sharda Pratap Shukla joined BJP. Similarly, Shadab Fatma joined BSP and is also contesting against Om Prakash Rajbhar from Zahoorabad on BSP ticket. All these three leaders were members of the national executive of the Praspa.
Akhilesh trolled on social media
Let us tell you that after Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal boarded the election chariot in Etawah, Akhilesh was trolled a lot on social media that uncle is being insulted. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also spoke on this issue for five minutes from the stage in the public meeting of Mainpuri. Prime Minister Modi also spoke openly about this from the election forums. After this, the strategists of SP understood that the party had to suffer a lot due to the quarrel in the house last time, so Shivpal Yadav was included in the list of star campaigner.
Shivpal is rich in organizational ability
At the same time, Akhilesh and his team also knew that Chacha Shivpal Singh Yadav’s organizational ability was very good, especially in Purvanchal, many candidates were calling him for campaigning. Candidates from Banaras, Ghazipur, Ballia, Gonda, Sitapur and Faizabad wanted to organize Shivpal’s program here. The reason behind making Shivpal a star campaigner is also to stop the infighting in the party. Especially in Purvanchal, many leaders who have not got tickets are supporting other parties from within.
New list of publishers prepared
A new list of campaigners has been prepared with the intention of curbing such things as well. The first challenge in front of Shivpal Singh Yadav is in Lucknow’s Sarojini Nagar seat where elections are held on February 23 and Sharda Pratap Shukla, an old colleague of Shivpal Yadav, is talking about destroying the SP. Let us tell you that Rajeshwar Singh is BJP’s candidate in Sarojininagar seat and he is contesting against Abhishek Mishra of SP.
