Jaya Bachchan Nominated Again To Rajya Sabha
LUCKNOW, (IANS) – Outgoing MP Jaya Bachchan, former chief secretary Alok Ranjan and former MP Ramji Lal Suman, have been named as Samajwadi Party candidates for the Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh.
Samajwadi Party leader Rajendra Chaudhary said on Tuesday, “We have fielded Jaya Bachchan, Ramji Lal Suman and Alok Ranjan.”
“Our party is very inclusive, and we have taken forward our pitch for the PDA by giving tickets to women, a Dalit, and a dominant caste member. This vindicates our stand that we are including all communities in our PDA pitch – with women and dominant castes being a part of it,” said the senior SP leader.
Jaya Bachchan will start her fifth term in the Upper House if she is elected. The move to nominate her has been taken with an eye on women voters in the state.
