Akhilesh Yadav to contest in upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly election from Karhal in Mainpuri


The Samajwadi Party (SP) put to rest the speculation about party chief Akhilesh Yadav contesting the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly election, confirming that he will be fielded from Karhal in Mainpuri. The announcement was made by SP national general secretary Ramgopal Yadav. "I am making a formal official announcement now. Our national president Akhilesh Yadav will contest the Karhal assembly constituency in Mainpuri, and he will win with massive mandate," Ramgopal Yadav said at a press conference where Akhilesh was also present.

Days ago, SP national spokesperson Ashutosh Verma had talked about Akhilesh contesting his first UP assembly election from Karhal, but said that a formal announcement will be made later.

Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav made more promises at the press conference if SP comes to power in Uttar Pradesh.

"Samajwadi Party has taken more decisions for public after we made 300 units free power to domestic consumers or free laptops to students. SP will create 22 lakh direct employment in IT sector in UP in Samajwadi Party's Rozgaar Sankalp when the SP forms government in 2022,” he said.
