Lucknow: As three seats of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council will become vacant on July 5, one seat is already vacant. With this, the BJP’s claim on a total of four vacant seats is being seen as a very strong proposition. Four seats of Lilavati Kushwaha, Ramvriksha Yadav, Jitendra Yadav and SRS Yadav will be vacant in the Legislative Council. All of whom are from Samajwadi Party. One seat is vacant after the death of SRS Yadav.
Legislative Council member SRS Yadav died on 8 September 2020 while fighting against Covid at PGI, Lucknow. On the four vacant seats, only the members nominated by Governor Anandiben Patel will reach the Legislative Council. In the current situation of Uttar Pradesh, the BJP’s claim is the strongest.
It is believed that in all the four seats, only the faces associated with BJP will get a place.
From the BJP side, many faces from the regional team and the state team will try their luck for the Legislative Council and many of these faces made their claim last time in front of BJP’s Uttar Pradesh organization general secretary Sunil Bansal and state president Swatantradev Singh.
In the list of contenders for the Legislative Council members are names of people active in education, medical, cultural, journalism and legal experts, including two faces of the state BJP.
