Dimple Yadav files nomination for Mainpuri Lok Sabha byelection

LUCKNOW: The daughter-in-law of veteran politician late Mulayam Singh Yadav, Dimple Yadav on Moday filed a nomination for the Mainpuri Lok Sabha by-election. The Mainpuri constituency necessitated a by-election due to the demise of Samajwadi Party founder Lt. Mulayam Singh Yadav on 10 October.

The bypolls for the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat will be held on December 5 and the result will be declared on December 8.

Dimple tweeted in Hindi: “With salutation to ‘Netaji’ (Mulayam Singh Yadav), we dedicate today’s nomination to his principles and values. Netaji’s blessings have always been with us, and they will always remain.” The by-polls of Mainpuri will take place on 5 December and the results will be announced on 8 December.

In the 2019 General Elections, Lt. Mulayam Singh Yadav won this seat by a margin of more than 94,000 votes over his nearest rival BJP’s Prem Singh Shakya. Whereas Dimple Yadav could not win the Lok Sabha election against BJP rival Subrat Pathak from Kannauj.

The Mainpuri parliamentary constituency has five assembly segments Mainpuri, Bhongaon, Kishni, Karhal and Jaswant Nagar. In 2012, Dimple Yadav was elected unopposed from the Kannauj constituency to the Lok Sabha but she resigned from the seat after Akhilesh Yadav became Chief Minister.

The BJP has not announced its candidate on the seat yet, while it is still not clear whether Congress, BSP and Shivpal Yadav’s Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia (PSPL) will contest the polls or not.

Dimple Yadav lost the Lok Sabha elections in 2019 to BJP candidate Subrat Pathak from Kannauj. In 2019, Mulayam Singh Yadav won the seat by a margin of more than 94,000 votes over his nearest rival BJP’s Prem Singh Shakya.

Akhilesh’s Karhal assembly seat is part of Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency and so is Jaswant Nagar, which is represented by Shivpal Yadav.

Dimple Yadav was elected unopposed from the Kannauj constituency to the Lok Sabha in 2012 after Akhilesh Yadav became the chief minister and resigned from the seat to enter the Uttar Pradesh legislative council.
