Speaking to TOI, a family member of Aparna Yadav said that it was “unlikely” that she would contest polls against her brother-in-law. He said, “She would do whatever the party decides but pitting her against Akhilesh would not be in the minds of the BJP leadership because of the sensitivity of their family relationship.”
