SP akhilesh yadav

Lucknow: Amid Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav's announcement of contesting from Mainpuri's Karhal in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2022, Raghupal Singh Bhadauria, the SP leader of Karhal assembly constituency, resigned from the SP and joined the BJP. This step of Raghupal is a big setback for the party. Bhadauria also targeted Samajwadi Party and Akhilesh Yadav.

Accusing the Samajwadi Party for caste politics, he said that people of Yadav caste are given more importance in SP.

Bhadauria has also been the state secretary of the Samajwadi Party.

Raghuraj Singh Bhadauria alleged that he has always worked for the welfare of Samajwadi Party, but Akhilesh Yadav did not listen to him. Bhadauria, who resigned from the SP, said, "I have been the village head from Karhal, the people there are with me and I will work for the BJP candidate." In fact, Bhadauria resigned from the party as soon as Akhilesh Yadav was confirmed to contest from Karhal on Thursday and joined the BJP on Friday.

Earlier, there were discussions that Akhilesh Yadav can contest from any seat in Azamgarh but it was decided on Thursday that he will contest from Karhal seat of Mainpuri. This seat is considered to be dominated by the Samajwadi Party and has a majority of homogeneous Yadav voters.

Talking about the Karhal seat, apart from 2002, since 1993, the candidate of the Samajwadi Party has been winning from here. The Bharatiya Janata Party had won from this seat in 2002. Samajwadi Party candidate Baburam Yadav came from this seat in the 1993 and 1996 assembly elections. Subsequently, Sovran Singh Yadav was elected MLA on SP ticket in the 2007, 2012 and 2017 assembly elections. The voting in Karhal is to be held on February 20.

Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections will be held in seven phases from February 14 to March 7 and the counting of votes will be held on March 10.
