SP declares son of BSP leader for the post of Zila Panchayat Chairman

On Saturday, the SP declared Anand Chaudhary, son of former UP Minister and BSP leader Ambika Chaudhary, for the post of Balia Zila Panchayat Chairman. The Samajwadi Party triggered a sharp reaction from the BSP legislative party’s leader Uma Shankar Singh who accused Ambika Chaudhary on this for betraying the party.

Anand Chaudhary’s candidature was declared by Ballia District president Raj Mangal Yadav. Anand Chaudhary’s candidature had been approved by SP supremo Akhilesh Yadav and the party’s state Unit Chief Naresh Uttam. Ambika Chaudhary had been a Cabinet Minister under Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav but joined BSP in 2016 at the time of the family feud within the Samajwadi Party.

Singh accused Chaudhary of backstabbing the BSP and said that he indulged in deceit and showed his true nature. He also said that when SP expelled him, the BSP honoured him and gave him a party ticket from Phephana assembly constituency.

Singh also claimed that Anand Chaudhary won the Zila Panchayat elections as a BSP candidate but SP declared him as its candidate for the post of Zila Panchayat chairman. On July 3, the polling for the elections of Zila Panchayat Chairpersons will be held. The Uttar Pradesh State Election Commission said that the counting of the votes will be done on the same day.

The chairperson for the Zila panchayat are elected from among the elected members of Zila Panchayat from various districts. The notification said that voting would be held from 11 am to 3 pm on July 3. In Uttar Pradesh there are 75 districts.
