She will be accompanied by her husband and actor-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan during filing her nomination.
She has represented the Lok Sabha seat twice since 2012 when it was vacated by her husband, who had become the chief minister.
Besides that, there will be a roadshow around ahead of the filing of nominations, SP spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said.
Ahead of her nomination, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday took a jibe at the Yadav family over ‘nepotism’. He also accused one family of earning billions and using caste, race to create a divide.
The UP CM tweeted, “This is the economics of ‘social justice’ followed by the SP-BSP. Seven lawmakers – father, son, brother, nephews – from the same family; from block level to panchayats, all posts are captured. Members of one family becoming billionaires within a generation. The lust of power leads to scams, robberies. In the name of caste, race, a divide is being created and people are being fooled. Beware.”
ये है सपा-बसपा के “सामाजिक न्याय” का अर्थशास्त्र-
-एक ‘परिवार’ से ही पिता पुत्र भाई भतीजे 6 सांसद, फिर विधायक, बाकी बचे ब्लॉक से लेकर पंचायत तक काबिज
-एक ‘परिवार’ का एक ही पीढ़ी में अरबपति होना
-सत्ता हासिल कर लूट-खसोट, घोटाले करना
जाति, वर्ग के नाम पर फिर ठगी का दस्तावेज
