Dimple Yadav set to be elected unopposed from Kannauj LS seat
Uttar Pradesh (UP) Chief Minister (CM) Akhilesh Yadav's wife Dimple Yadav is set to be elected unopposed to the Lok Sabha from the Kannauj parliamentary constituency in Uttar Pradesh as only two independent candidates who had filled their nominations have withdrawn their names clearing the way of Dimple to be selected 'unopposed'.
The polls were scheduled to be goes on June 24.
Dimple, 35, who filed her nomination papers on June 5, will be declared the winner from this constituency tomorrow. It has been a poll walkover for her, as mainstream political parties did not field any candidate against her.
Dimple had earlier this week said that being the chief minister's wife, it would be a golden opportunity for her to work for Kannauj.
"I think being the wife of the chief minister, I have the best opportunity to work for the welfare of the people and to work for the development of my constituency," she said.
Dimple had contested the 2009 Firozabad by-election, but lost to Congress candidate Raj Babbar.
The Kannauj parliamentary constituency fell vacant after Akhilesh Yadav resigned from the Lok Sabha on being sworn in as a member of the UP Legislative Council and after becoming the State's chief minister.
Akhilesh Yadav has represented the Kannauj seat thrice.
