By helping Kapil Sibal get a berth in Rajya Sabha, Akhilesh Yadav has a broader plan in mind
Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party (SP) has decided to send support to former Congress leader Kapil Sibal to the Rajya Sabha. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who quit the Congress on May 16, filed his nomination as an independent candidate on Wednesday. SP President Akhilesh Yadav himself also accompanied him during the nomination. It is being said that senior SP leader Azam Khan is being sent to Rajya Sabha as a reward for his role in getting bail. However, even before this, Sibal had reached the Upper House only with the support of the SP. Akhilesh has once again expressed confidence in Sibal.
Akhilesh wants to please Azam?
Rampur leader Azam Khan, who was lodged in Sitapur jail for about two and a half years, is said to be angry with the SP and its president. Azam Khan himself is refraining from speaking openly on the displeasure, but he definitely said that he wants to see Kapil Sibal going to the Rajya Sabha. Praising Sibal fiercely, he said that he has no words to thank. He (Azam) will be most happy if SP sends him to Rajya Sabha. It is believed that Akhilesh Yadav has tried to hit many targets with one arrow. There is also a goal in this to heal Azam’s pain. Now it is possible that Kapil Sibal bridges the gap between Akhilesh and Azam and eliminates any possibility of Azam Khan moving here and there.
Message to Muslim Voters
Political experts say that the way Kapil Sibal advocated on behalf of the Muslim side in the Supreme Court on issues like CAA-NRC, Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi dispute, triple talaq, bulldozer, hijab, his acceptance in the Muslim society has increased. . Party strategists believe that minority voters will also be happy with the entry of Kapil Sibal, who has openly supported the party in the recently concluded assembly elections. In such a situation, the party has tried to send a message to them with this step that the party respects those who stand with the minority community.
Importance in Delhi politics

SP hopes that Kapil Sibal will give importance to the party through his contacts in Delhi politics. Kapil Sibal also said after the nomination that he would try to unite all the parties against Modi.
