During by-poll campaign, Akhilesh Yadav touches Shivpal’s feet

Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav was seen touching the feet of his uncle and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohiya) leader Shivpal Yadav on a stage while campaigning for the by-elections in Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri.
Shivpal was one of the names in the list of 40-star campaigners released by the party recently for the SP candidate on the seat Dimple Yadav, wife of former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. The other prominent names that are included in the list are Akhilesh, Jaya Bachchan, Azam Khan and others. The development comes at a time when the party is reeling under the differences between the two members, Shivpal and Akhilesh. However, both of them have lately been seen together at family functions. Akhilesh Yadav and Dimple Yadav on Thursday met with Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) chief Shivpal Singh Yadav to discuss the elections.
Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat is a prestigious seat for the Yadav family and is a Samajwadi Party bastion.
