UP: Members of the late Mulayam Singh Yadav's family filed their nomination papers for various Lok Sabha constituencies on Tuesday. Leading the charge was Dimple Yadav, Mulayam's daughter-in-law, who submitted her papers as Samajwadi Party candidate for the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat. She was accompanied by the SP chief and her husband, Akhilesh Yadav, along with senior party leaders, Shivpal Singh Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav.

The upcoming election in Mainpuri is slated for the third round of the sevenphase Lok Sabha elections on May 7. It has garnered considerable attention. Dimple Yadav's entry into the electoral fray follows her victory in the Mainpuri by-poll in 2022, succeeding the late SP patriarch, Mulayam Singh Yadav. She faces stiff competition from BJP candidate, Jaiveer Singh, and BSP's Shiv Prasad Yadav.

Two other scions of the Yadav family, Aditya and Akshaya, filed their nomination papers from the Budaun and Firozabad Lok Sabha seats, respectively. Shivpal Yadav's son, Aditya, submitted his papers from the Budaun seat, marking his electoral debut. The constituency, currently held by BJP's Sanghmitra Maurya, witnesses a shift in candidate selection this time with Durvijay Singh Shakya securing the BJP ticket.
