Lucknow: Amid speculations in the political circles, the daughter-in-law of Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, Aparna Yadav , on Friday, met Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Aparna, who has recently tasted defeat in the state assembly elections, paid a visit to the newly appointed UP CM along with her husband Prateek Yadav at the VVIP guest House where the CM is currently staying.
The sources close to the CM said that the meeting was pre-scheduled.
Reason for the couple’s visit remained unclear, however, according to the Samajwadi Party sources, Aparna and CM Yogi Adityanath are distantly related and the duo went to congratulate him. The party sources stated that CM Adityanath’s real name is Ajay Singh Bisht and both Yogi and Aparna belong to Uttarakhand and share a distant relationship.
It is worth mentioning that Aparna Yadav had lost her assembly seat, from Lucknow Cantt constituency, to Bharatiya Janata Party’s Rita Bahuguna Joshi in the 2017 assembly elections.
