Dimple Yadav gets virtual walkover to Lok Sabha

LUCKNOW: It’s a Lok Sabha byelection in the country’s politically most important state which no national party is willing to contest. After the Congress declared that it won’t put up a candidate against Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav’s daughter-in-law Dimple Yadav in Kannauj, the BJP candidate on Wednesday “mysteriously” failed to reach the DM’s office in time to file his papers.

With BSP, too, having bizarrely said it won’t fight against Dimple in protest against SP’s failure to bring development to Kannauj, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav’s wife is all set to create history by claiming a Lok Sabha seat with her only challengers being two independents. In fact, she may even get elected unopposed if SP persuades the two, Dashrath Shankhwar and Sanju Katiyar, to withdraw.

Peace Party of India spokesperson Aziz Khan alleged that SP goons attacked the party office on Tuesday night, threatening its workers against filing nomination.

Interestingly, Peace Party of India spokesman Aziz Khan said the party office was ransacked and the police did not come for help despite repeated calls while SP goons threatened its workers against filing nomination.

Other’s stopped

Another aspiring independent, Prabhat Pandey, in a complaint to the Election Commission, said he was obstructed by unknown people from reaching Kannauj for filing his papers. He said that even when he managed to reach the office of the returning officer, he refused to accept his papers.

On Tuesday, both the Congress and BJP had announced they won’t contest. While the Congress said it had not fought in Kannauj in 2009 as well, BJP had said its priority was urban local body elections due June 23. But on Wednesday, party president Nitin Gadkari cleared Jagdev Yadav’s candidature, who failed to reach the DM’s office on time.

Political analysts see Mulayam’s “PR efforts” behind Dimple’s smooth ride so far.

Kannauj had fallen vacant after Akhilesh resigned to take over as CM in March. By fielding Dimple, Mulayam wants to keep the constituency in the family. Akhilesh had won from Kannauj and Firozabad in 2009 but retained Kannauj, fielding Dimple in Firozabad.
