Samajwadi Party (SP) Wednesday fielded former BSP minister Babu Singh Kushwahas wife Shivkanya from Ghazipur constituency by replacing sitting MP Radhey Mohan Singh.
SP also changed its candidates from three other constituencies Lalganj,Sant Kabir Nagar and Deoria fielding labour minister Waqar Shahs son Yasir from Shrawasti. Yasir is presently MLA from Matera in Bahraich.
Shivkanya,along with Babu Singh Kushwahas brother Shiv Sharan Kushwaha joined SP on July 13. They were inducted by SP terming them social workers and defended their inclusion on grounds they have the right to be in politics and cannot be blamed for being Babu Singh Kushwahas family members.
Their induction meant sitting MP from Ghazipur Radhey Mohan Singh once again lost favour with the SP leadership. Tourism minister Om Prakash Singh,who joined SP in November last year,was replaced by Radhey Mohan in March. The SP leadership thought that I may not be able to win the elections. I will not comment on the new candidate,but will declare my stand in a few days, Radhey Mohan Singh MP said.
