Dimple Yadav to contest from Kannauj?

March 15th, 2012 - 2:03 pm ICT by IANS  

Agra, March 15 (IANS) Dimple Yadav could be the Samjwadi Party candidate for the Kannauj Lok Sabha seat once the seat is vacated by her husband and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, party sources said Wednesday.

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav apparently favours the candidature of Dimple Yadav, the sources told IANS here. Akhilesh Yadav is to get elected to the Uttar Pradesh assembly.

Dimple Yadav lost the Firozabad by-election in November 2009 to actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar after he defected to the Congress. The defeat led to Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh parting ways.

The Samajwadi Party took power this month in Uttar Pradesh with a thumping majority in the 403-member house.
