LUCKNOW: The Samajwadi Party (SP)-Rashtriya Lok Dal alliance on Sunday declared Madan Bhaiya as its candidate for the bypoll to the Khatauli assembly constituency seat in Uttar Pradesh. The update was shared by the official Twitter handle of the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).
”Madan Bhaiya will be the candidate of RLD-SP alliance for Khatauli assembly seat by-election 2022,” read the tweet in Hindi.
