Aparna Should Have Stayed with SP, Exit Won’t Impact Us in UP Polls: Shivpal Yadav

UP Elections 2022: Shivpal spoke to CNN-NEWS18 in his native Saifai village before going to file his nomination from the Jaswantnagar seat on the Samajwadi Party symbol. He has won the seat five times and his new party is in an alliance with Akhilesh Yadav’s SP.

Aparna Yadav should have stayed with the family and the Samajwadi Party (SP), although her exit will not impact the party in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections, Shivpal Singh Yadav told CNN-NEWS18 in an exclusive interview on Friday.

Shivpal is the brother of Mulayam Singh Yadav who has a grass-root grip over Uttar Pradesh.

“We have always been together but in the 2017 elections, there was some misunderstanding in the family. I am fighting on cycle symbol like the last time. My experience will help Akhilesh Yadav in these elections. My appeal to people is that the alliance should get a big win and the government be formed with an absolute majority in 2022 under the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav as the CM,”
