Shivpal Yadav’s security downgraded from ‘Z’ to ‘Y’ category amid intense campaigning for Mainpuri Lok Sabha bypoll

NEW DELHI: At a time when campaigning has intensified for the crucial Manpuri Lok Sabha byelection, the Uttar Pradesh government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has downgraded the security provided to MLA and PSP chief Shivpal Yadav. According to reports, Shivpal Yadav, who is the younger brother of later Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav and uncle of party chief Akhilesh Yadav, will now be covered under the ‘Y’ category.

“MLA and PSP chief Shivpal Yadav’s security has been downgraded from the Z category to the Y category,” Security Department, Uttar Pradesh Police said in a statement.  



The announcement comes days ahead of the Mainpuri Lok Sabha by-election which is due to be held on December 5 and the result will be declared on December 8. Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat is a traditional seat of the Yadav family and has been a Samajwadi Party bastion.

BJP has fielded for party MP Raghuraj Singh Shakya to take on SP’s Dimple Yadav. It was earlier speculated that Shivpal Singh Yadav may also contest. But Samajwadi Party declared Dimple Yadav as its candidate. According to family sources, Shivpal Singh Yadav also supported Dimple Yadav`s candidature after which the Samajwadi Party went a step further and included his name in its list of star campaigners.

At present, both parties are putting their full force into the campaign. Late Mulayam Singh Yadav was a continuous MP from here. However, in the last Lok Sabha elections, Mulayam`s victory margin was very thin. Since then, it was believed that after Mulayam, Mainpuri would not be easy for the SP. This became further clear only in the by-elections that were held after the death of Mulayam Singh Yadav. If political pundits are to be believed, now the matter is 50-50.
