In Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh, Samajwadi Party and Progressive Samajwadi (Lohia) jointly defeated the Bharatiya Janata Party in the elections for the Zilla Panchayat member wards. Before the three-tier panchayat elections, Abhishek Yadav, son of Mulayam Singh Yadav and Rajpal Singh Yadav, brother of Shivpal Singh Yadav, had to unite uncle Shivpal and nephew Akhilesh to make him the district panchayat president.
BJP won the battle of uncle nephew
The Samajwadi Party lost in Uttar Pradesh in the 2017 assembly elections due to a quarrel of a nephew in the Saifai family. In which 3 seats of Etawah, Shivpal Singh Yadav of Jaswantnagar won 1 seat and BJP candidates won in Bharthana and Sadar Etawah assembly seat and SP lost in their own stronghold. In the Modi wave, Etawah Lok Sabha in 2019, BJP candidate Dr. Ramshankar Katheria was sent to Lok Sabha by the people of Etawah.
Shivpal and Akhilesh reunite to save family seat
Shivpal and Akhilesh came together to save the family seat in the 2021 three-tier panchayat election, and the leaders of both parties strategically fielded their own candidates in the elections, which resulted in a massive defeat for the ruling party.
The Samajwadi Party won 09 District Panchayat members and Praspa won the District Panchayat seat again by winning 08 Panchayat members. However, all the candidates who had won were included in their list by SP Praspa and declared them candidates.
After the victory of the Zilla Panchayat members, there is happiness in the SP-Praspa cadres and family on one side. On the other hand, in the 2022 assembly elections, the nephew of Chacha has woken up to the elections in the state together and the formation of Akhilesh Yadav-led government. This time will decide whether the assembly nephew will contest the elections in 2022 or to defeat each other.
