Akhilesh Yadav’s SP To Field Jaya Bachchan, Alok Ranjan, Ramji Lal Suman For Rajya Sabha Electi

The Samajwadi Party will field Jaya Bachchan, Ramji Lal Suman, and Alok Ranjan for the Rajya Sabha elections to be held on February 27. SP national spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary announced the names on Tuesday.

Chaudhary said all the candidates filed their nominations on Wednesday. Ramjilal Suman is a former MP and is among the very close associates of SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Veteran actor Jaya Bachchan, wife of actor Amitabh Bachchan, has been the party’s Rajya Sabha representative since 2004. Former IAS officer Alok Ranjan was the Chief Secretary of the state during the tenure of the Samajwadi Party and is considered to have a strong influence among the officer class.

Samajwadi Party has three members in the Rajya Sabha — Ram Gopal Yadav, Javed Ali Khan, and Jaya Bachchan — at present. 

A candidate will need at least 37 first preference votes to secure a seat in the Rajya Sabha. Thus, the SP can send three members to the Rajya Sabha. The last date for filing nominations for the Rajya Sabha elections is February 15. Voting will take place on February 27 and the results will be declared the same day.
