Lucknow: Samajwadi Party (SP) has announced the names of its Rajya Sabha candidates. It is being told that party president Akhilesh Yadav has decided to send his wife Dimple Yadav to the Upper House. Apart from Dimple, the names of Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Javed Ali Khan are also in this list. Kapil Sibal has been a Rajya Sabha MP from the Congress, while Javed Ali Khan has been sent to the Rajya Sabha by the SP.
Let us inform that the nomination process for 11 seats of Rajya Sabha has started from May 24. The SP is currently in a position to send three people to the Rajya Sabha. At present, the SP has five MPs in the Rajya Sabha. In this, the tenure of Kunwar Revati Raman Singh, Vishambar Prasad Nishad and Chaudhary Sukhram Singh Yadav is ending on July 4. At the same time, the Rajya Sabha membership of Congress leader and lawyer by profession Kapil Sibal is about to end. Many kinds of speculations were being made about him, but now the way for SP to send him to Rajya Sabha is almost clear. Before the list of SP, it was discussed that Sibal can go to Rajya Sabha with the support of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM).
As far as Kapil Sibal is concerned, it is believed that Akhilesh wants to seize this opportunity in the midst of Azam Khan's neglect and the post-release tussle. Azam Khan said after his release from jail that my loved ones have a hand in my destruction. In such a situation, if Sibal goes to Rajya Sabha with the help of SP, then it can definitely prove to be an effective step in removing Azam's displeasure. Along with this, SP will also get a big leader and legal advisor.
