Speaking to reporters in Lucknow, the former Samajwadi Party leader said: “I agree that Yogi Adityanath is an honest leader. But he lacks control over the state bureaucracy because of which corruption has increased and people are suffering.”

Shivpal Yadav, who parted ways with the SP to start the PSPL last year, is contesting from the Firozabad Lok Sabha constituency against SP’s Akshay Yadav, the son of his cousin and SP General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav.

However, his party has not fielded any candidate from Mainpuri against SP patriarch and his elder brother Mulayam Singh Yadav, from Badaun against Dharmendra Yadav, his other nephew and son of brother Abhay Yadav, and from Kannauj against SP President Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav.
