Lucknow: Shivpal Singh Yadav, MLA from Jaswantnagar Assembly and National President of Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (PSP) in Uttar Pradesh, is currently campaigning for daughter-in-law Dimple Yadav, a candidate from SP for Mainpuri by-election. He is seen seeking votes for his daughter-in-law in the area and talking about prestige. Shivpal Yadav along with his supporters reached village Raheen under the Chaubia police station area to seek door-to-door votes. During this, Shivpal said that when the daughter-in-law of our house is contesting elections, we have united. Shivpal said that we have told Akhilesh Yadav that we will remain united.
According to the report, Shivpal Yadav also lashed out at his disciple and BJP candidate Raghuraj Singh Shakya. He said among his supporters that Raghuraj Singh is in the election field against his daughter-in-law (Dimple Yadav), and he calls himself our disciple. But if he (Raghuraj Shakya) was a real disciple, he would not have left us at all. He should not have contested against our daughter-in-law. If he was a disciple, he should have stayed with us. At least he would have gone after telling me, but he (Raghuraj) quietly went to the BJP.
Shivpal further said that when we called Raghuraj to inquire about his whereabouts, he told that he had gone to get his test done and was unwell. We said that we will call the doctor, I know good doctors in Lohia Hospital. Shivpal said that after this I also called and came to know that he had not gone to the hospital. Then Raghuraj went to BJP the next day. If he was a disciple, he would not have left us at all.
