Samajwadi Party MLA, who warned Yogi Adityanath, faces action; his unauthorized petrol pump bulldozed
Gorakhnath temple attack: Akhilesh Yadav, Samajwadi Party sympathizes with terrorists, says Keshav Prasad Maurya
Yadav, who won from Karhal in Mainpuri in his maiden Assembly contest, was appointed the Leader of Opposition in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly in March after he was unanimously elected as the leader of the SP legislature party.
Khan has been lodged in Sitapur jail since February 2020 in various cases filed against him during the Yogi Adityanath regime in Uttar Pradesh. The former Uttar Pradesh minister contested the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections from behind the bars and won the Rampur seat for the 10th time.
In February during the UP Assembly election campaign, Adityanath said that Yadav did not want the SP leader to come out of jail as it would threaten his position.
The speculation about Khan’s exit comes amid reports that Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party-Lohia (PSP-L) chief and SP chief’s uncle Shivpal Yadav is likely to snap ties with Akhilesh Yadav’s party.
