Thursday turned out to be a big day for the Samajwadi Party, as the party registered a mega victory in the Mainpuri Lok Sabha bypolls. The party’s candidate and Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav recorded a landslide victory in the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat, defeating BJP's Raghuraj Singh Shakya by over 2.8 lakh votes.


It seemed like a clear win since morning, as Dimple took a good lead as the counting started. Mulayam Singh Yadav's elder daughter-in-law and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav's wife Dimple was leading since the counting started at 8 AM on Thursday and polled a total of 6,18,120 votes. Shakya, on the other hand, received 3,29,659 votes. The by-election in Mainpuri was necessitated following the demise of SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav.


Later speaking to the media after the results, Akhilesh Yadav thanked the people of Mainpuri for keeping the legacy of late Mulayam Singh Yadav. He also thanked his uncle Shivpal Yadav who merged his political outfit with SP and said that together they will now work towards strengthening the party.
