Prestige Battle Brews as Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav Puts All Efforts into Ghosi By-Election

The upcoming Lok Sabha by-election in Ghosi has taken on the contours of a significant prestige battle for the Samajwadi Party (SP), with its leader Akhilesh Yadav dedicating unwavering determination to secure victory in this electoral contest.

In a notable show of commitment, Akhilesh Yadav recently addressed a sizable gathering during a public meeting in Ghosi on August 29. His speech was a direct assault on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led state government, and he singled out Dara Singh Chauhan, the BJP’s candidate from Ghosi, who had defected from SP to join the BJP.

The intensity of Akhilesh Yadav’s focus on this by-election is palpable, as he has consistently been evading questions on subjects apart from the Ghosi by-poll. This unequivocally underscores the Samajwadi Party’s emphasis on clinching victory in this election.

To bolster their campaign, senior SP leaders like Shivpal Singh Yadav and Ramgopal are tirelessly engaging in campaigning for the SP candidate Sudhakar Singh, by remaining stationed in Ghosi, Mau.

Prior to departing for a Mumbai event, Akhilesh Yadav addressed the media, stating, “The people of Ghosi have made their decision, and the BJP will taste defeat in the byelection. This sentiment is evident on the faces of BJP leaders who visit Ghosi. They realize they won’t secure votes in the election, and the people of Ghosi will usher in change.”

Reflecting on his own campaign efforts and the party’s strategies, Akhilesh Yadav remarked, “When I held a public rally in Ghosi, the BJP took issue with it. When I refrained from campaigning, they raised concerns again. Their reactions clearly indicate their apprehension about losing the elections.”

On the other hand, the BJP has not hesitated to criticize Akhilesh Yadav’s endeavors. Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya commented, “Akhilesh Yadav didn’t visit Azamgarh for his brother’s election campaign, but now he is visiting Ghosi assembly for election campaign because he understands the BJP’s strength and doesn’t want to leave any loose ends.”

Maurya urged the voters of the Ghosi assembly to respond resoundingly to the SP, as they did in the 2014 elections, emphasizing that the Samajwadi Party is currently in a precarious state and people are unwilling to extend any support.

Further amplifying the political heat, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is slated to address a public rally in the Ghosi assembly on September 2, where a significant show of strength is anticipated.

The Ghosi by-poll is scheduled for September 5, with the vote counting slated for September 8. The electoral fervor in Ghosi underscores the significant stakes in this electoral contest for all parties involved.**
