New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) has announced to send support to Congress veteran Kapil Sibal to Rajya Sabha. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who resigned from the Congress on May 16, filed his nomination as an independent candidate on Wednesday. SP chief Akhilesh Yadav himself was also present during the nomination. It is being told that senior SP leader Azam Khan is being sent to Rajya Sabha as a reward for his role in getting him released from jail. However, even before this, Sibal had reached the Rajya Sabha with the support of the SP.
In fact, SP leader Azam Khan, who was lodged in Sitapur jail for almost two and a half years, is said to be angry with the party and its president. Azam Khan himself is refraining from making an open statement on the displeasure, but he definitely said that he wants to see Kapil Sibal going to the Rajya Sabha. Heaping praise on Sibal, Azam said that he has no words to thank. He (Azam) will be most happy if SP sends him to Rajya Sabha. It is being told that Akhilesh Yadav has tried to hit many targets with this one arrow. There is also a goal in this to heal Azam's pain. Now it is possible that Kapil Sibal bridges the gap between Akhilesh and Azam and eliminates the slightest possibility of Azam Khan moving here and there.
Political experts say that the way Kapil Sibal advocated on behalf of the Muslim side in the Supreme Court on issues like CAA-NRC, Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute, triple talaq, bulldozer, hijab, his acceptance in the Muslim community has increased. . Party insiders believe that the entry of Kapil Sibal will also cheer the minority voters, who have voted heavily for the party in the recently concluded assembly elections. In such a situation, the party has tried to send them a message with this step that the party respects those who stand with the minority community.
