SP denies reports of Abhishek Bachchan contesting Lok Sabha polls

SP denies reports of Abhishek Bachchan contesting  Lok Sabha polls

Prayagraj: The Samajwadi Party has denied the reports that claim actor Abhishek Bachchan contesting the 2024 Lok Sabha polls as their candidate from Prayagraj.

The party dismissed the report describing it as a 'mere rumour'.

“There has been no recommendation from our end in this connection,” a party official said.

SP city president Syed Iftikhar Hussain said, “It is for the national president of the party, Akhilesh Yadav, to decide who would be fielded from the political hot seat. Although a section of the media has reported that Abhishek would be fielded from Prayagraj in the next general election, no such recommendation was made by us. The news is totally speculative.”

He added that the party is preparing for the next general elections and it is too early to finalise any name. “Whoever will be our candidate, will win the seat,” he said.

SP’s former district president Yogesh Chandra Yadav, too denied that Abhishek Bachchan will be fielded by the party.

“A couple of months back someone had floated the name of Jaya Bachchan as the SP candidate from Prayagraj, and now her son’s name is doing the rounds. This is too immature an issue to deserve comment."
