Samajwadi Party on Sunday (April 14) replaced Shivpal Yadav and fielded his son Aditya from the Badaun Lok Sabha seat. In the "rectified" list of candidates released on Sunday evening, the party declared the names on two seats --Badaun and Sultanpur. The party has fielded Ram Bhuwal Nishad from Sultanpur seat. He will be up against sitting BJP MP Maneka Gandhi.

The party had first fielded Dharmendra Yadav from the seat. In another list, the party replaced Yadav with Shivpal Yadav. Now, in the latest list, Shivpal has been replaced by his son Aditya.

The Congress and Samajwadi Party are contesting the elections in Uttar Pradesh under the Opposition's I.N.D.I.A bloc, as part of which Congress will contest on 17 seats out of 80 and the remaining seats will go to the Samajwadi Party and its smaller allies.

The SP has also given the ticket to Babu Singh Kushwaha, a former close aide of BSP chief Mayawati. He has been made the SP candidate from Jaunpur, party spokesperson Rajpal Kashyap said.

Ramashankar Rajbhar, a former BSP MP from Salempur, has been made the candidate by the SP in this election. He had represented Salempur in the Lok Sabha from 2009 to 2014.

Apart from this, the SP has also fielded Amarnath Maurya from Phoolpur and Priya Saroj from Machhlishahr.

Kashyap said Domariyaganj candidate Tiwari was the MP from Sant Kabir Nagar from 2009 to 2014, and from Khalilabad from 2007 to 2009. Tiwari was then with the BSP, and he joined the SP in December 2021.

Kushwaha's Jan Adhikar Party was a part of the coalition Bhagidari Parivartan Morcha in the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. The party failed to win any seat in the election.
