Lucknow. Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav, who was giving the message of increasing strength by breaking many backward class leaders from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was dealt a big blow by the ruling party on Wednesday. Aparna Yadav, the daughter-in-law of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, today joined BJP in the presence of Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya and BJP state president Swatantra Dev Singh. A few days ago, Hari Om Yadav, the friend of the SP Patron, has joined the BJP.
Aparna Yadav, daughter-in-law of senior Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, joined the party in the presence of Uttar Pradesh BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh and Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya at the BJP headquarters in Delhi. Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Aparna Yadav joining BJP said that despite being the daughter-in-law of Mulayam Singh, Aparna Yadav has expressed her views. After many days of discussion, he decided to join BJP.
After joining the Bharatiya Janata Party before the 2022 UP assembly elections, Aparna Yadav said that I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi and National President JP Nadda. I thank Uttar Pradesh BJP President Swatantra Dev Singh, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya and Anil Baluni. I was already influenced by the Prime Minister, for me the nation is first. Now I have gone out to worship the nation. Your cooperation is essential in this. I will say that whatever I can do, I will do it to the best of my ability.
Aparna’s joining BJP is being considered important in terms of electoral politics in this era of defection of leaders between the two rival parties of the state, SP and BJP, ahead of the Legislative Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. Recently, to compensate for the political loss caused by all the ministers and MLAs of the Yogi government joining the SP, the BJP has made a big burglary in the house of the SP chief. Aparna Yadav had come to Delhi from Lucknow late on Tuesday evening. It is believed that Aparna can be made the party’s candidate from the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Lucknow Cantt seat. She has contested the last election on this seat as a candidate of Samajwadi Party. He was defeated by Rita Bahuguna Joshi of BJP.
