New Delhi: Aparna Yadav, the daughter-in-law of SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav, joined BJP in presence of Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya, UP BJP chief Swatantra Dev Singh, and other leaders on Wednesday.
On joining the party, Aparna Yadav said that working for the nation has always been her priority. “For me, the nation comes first. And my move (to join BJP) signifies that nation comes first for me,” she said in Delhi.
Aparna Yadav is Mulayam Singh’s younger son Pratik Yadav’s spouse.
In the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly election, Aparna Yadav ran for the Lucknow Cantt seat and was defeated by BJP candidate Rita Bahuguna Joshi.
It is being seen as a tit-for-tat move by BJP after last week’s setback to the Yogi-led UP government with the exit of three state cabinet ministers and several MLAs joining forces with Akhilesh Yadav’s SP.
