The Samajwadi Party has declared Dimple Yadav, wife of Akhilesh Yadav, as the candidate for the Mainpuri by-election 2022 in the Lok Sabha constituency.

On the other hand, BJP is also leaving no stone unturned to keep the contest interesting.

This will be followed by voting on December 5 and counting on December 8. After the death of Mulayam Singh Yadav, the by-election is being held on this seat.
