Lucknow: Kapil Sibal, who has been doing politics in the hands of Congress since the beginning, has given a big blow to the party and has ridden on Akhilesh Yadav’s cycle. Kapil Sibal along with Ram Gopal Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav has gone to the assembly and filed nomination for the Rajya Sabha.
Kapil Sibal while talking to the media after filing his nomination for the Rajya Sabha elections with the support of SP said that I had resigned from the Congress party on May 16.
Nominations have begun for 11 Rajya Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh and former Union Minister Kapil Sibal, former Kannauj MP and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav and Javed Ali have been made candidates this time.
Kapil Sibal had represented senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan in the Supreme Court and finally got him bail last week.
Earlier a senior party leader said, “If he (Sibal) managed to get Azam Khan bail and get the party veteran out of jail, the party should send him to the Upper House.”
Azam Khan has already come out in support of SP and apparently so too. “If the SP is thinking of fielding him (Sibal) as the party candidate for the Rajya Sabha, I will be most happy,” he said. He is capable and deserves it.
