A day after Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Sonbhadra’s Duddhi constituency,Samajwadi Party on Sunday declared Ramnaresh Paswan as the candidate from the seat.

The declaration was pending for a few days now as SP’s earlier declared candidate from Dudhhi,Vijay Singh Gond,defected to Congress. Gond was declared as the Congress candidate from Duddhi last week.Samajwadi Party also changed the candidate for Kanpur’s Ghatampur constituency,restoring the candidature of Somwati Shankhwar. Shankhwar’s ticket was cancelled on January 13,and Indrajeet Kori was given the ticket instead. However,on Sunday,the party dropped Kori’s name and once again fielded Shankhwar from the seat.

The party also changed the candidate from Aligarh’s Iglas constituency. Instead of Devendra Pradhan,the ticket has now been given to Kanhaiya Lal Diwakar.
