Mulayam Singh’s daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav likely to join BJP today
New Delhi: A senior BJP leader on Tuesday claimed that Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav’s daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav will join the saffron party on Wednesday morning.
Aparna Yadav is the wife of Mulayam Singh’s younger son, Pratik Yadav. Aparna had contested the 2017 Uttar Pradesh Assembly election from Lucknow Cantt seat but she lost to BJP candidate Rita Bahuguna Joshi.
BJP leader Arun Yadav, who is also the state incharge of Haryana BJP, tweeted that Aparna’s induction into the BJP will happen in the presence of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath at 10am on Wednesday.
If Aparna switches to the BJP ahead of the assembly elections as claimed by the BJP leader, it will be a big blow to the Samajwadi Party which has poached 11 MLAs including three ministers from the saffron camp.
