By Anusha Ravi

The Samajwadi Party on Friday released a fresh list of candidates who will contest in 191 constituencies of Uttar Pradesh. The list also includes the name of Shivpal Singh Yadav who is set to contest for the Jaswantnagar assembly constituency.

Shivpal has held the Jaswantnagar constituency seat since 1996, winning it four consecutive times. Before Shivpal Yadav, the constituency was the bastion of SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav. Mulayam had earlier on Friday said that his blessings were with Akhilesh hinting that he supported the Uttar Pradesh chief minister's selection of candidates.
