2022 Assembly Elections Highlights: According to a report, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav will contest Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections from Mainpuri’s Karhal constituency. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday announced that the chief ministerial face and party leader Bhagwant Mann will fight the Punjab Assembly Polls from Dhuri constituency in Sangrur. Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Aazad is set to fight the upcoming Assembly elections from Gorakhpur Sadar, taking on CM Yogi Adityanath.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal Thursday invited Utpal Parrikar to contest the Goa elections on his party’s ticket, adding that BJP has adopted a “use and throw policy” with the Parrikar family. This comes after the Bharatiya Janata Party denied a ticket to the former CM Manohar Parrikar’s son while declaring a list of 34 candidates.
Meanwhile, Keshav Prasad Maurya, once considered the closest to the chief minister’s chair when he led the state BJP as it swept Uttar Pradesh, cannot be easily overlooked when it comes to the future of the party in the state. The exit of several OBC leaders from its ranks means the BJP needs to keep its tallest leader from the community happy. Our special story looks at The Other Maurya.
