Default Dimple Yadav Akhilesh Yadav's (Personal Life, Family, Photos, Career, Education, Full Details)

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's wife, Dimple Yadav, on Saturday became the first woman elected unopposed in a Lok Sabha by-election from Uttar Pradesh and second candidate in the entire State after Purshottam Das Tandon's election from Allahabad West in 1952.Ms. Yadav's election from Kannauj was announced by Returning Officer Selva Kumari J., after the deadline for withdrawal of nominations expired at 3 p.m.

The announcement was mere formality after two candidates, Dashrath Shankwar and Sanju Katiyar, withdrew from the contest on Friday. The mainstream Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and Bharatiya Janata Party already decided to give the daughter-in-law of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh a smooth passage into the Lok Sabha when they backed out of the by-election, citing different reasons.

(Personal Life, Family, Photos, Career, Education


Who is Dimple Yadav?

Dimple is the wife of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who assumed office in March. His election as CM left vacant the Kannauj Lok Sabha seat, which he thrice represented. Akhilesh and Dimple belong to the Samajwadi Party and have three kids.Born in 1978, Dimple graduated in Humanities from the Lucknow University. So far she has not played a very active role in politics, apart from contesting the November 2009 Firozabad by-election which she lost to actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar.
She recently declared assets of around Rs238.38 lakh.


Why is she in the news now?
Dimple has filed her nomination for the upcoming by-polls on June 24 contesting for the Kannauj seat. As CM, Akhilesh will not campaign for Dimple. The Kannauj seat is considered to be a safe bet for Dimple as her husband has already represented it thrice. The bahu card might just help the Samajwadi Party maintain status quo in known territory.
The last date for filing nominations is June 6, while the last date for withdrawal of nominations is June 9. The votes will be counted on June 27.


What is the Congress’ role?
Interestingly, Congress will not field any candidate for the Kannauj seat. Defending its decision, party general secretary Digvijay Singh said, ‘We had not contested the seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha election and we are not contesting it now. Besides Kannauj, the party had not put up candidate then from Mainpuri from where Mulayam Singh had contested.’
However, in 2009, Congress candidate, actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar, defeated Dimple in the Firozabad by-election. Incidentally, Dimple’s defeat in that election is what is said to have spurred Akhilesh to take on the Congress and Rahul Gandhi. It is said that he had vowed to avenge his wife’s defeat in the by-election by wiping out the Congress in UP, which he very nearly achieved in the recent assembly election.
However, the current SP-Congress bonhomie is likely to keep the political atmosphere in India’s largest state charged for the coming days.

Why is it important for Dimple to win from Kannauj?
According to Vishwanath Chaturvedi, petitioner in the disproportionate assets against Mulayam Singh Yadav and three of his family members, Dimple is being fielded as a candidate to safeguard her from possible prosecution in the case. ‘It is very important for Mulayam and Akhilesh that Dimple wins from Kannauj. If she wins then the status of being a MP will give her some protection that her father-in-law enjoys. CBI ke case se ghar ki bahu ko bachhana hai (The daughter-in-law has to be protected against the CBI's case.)”, Chaturvedi said in an interview to Rediff.com.

What are the wider political implications?
In an interview with a news channel, Akhilesh said it was the ‘wish of the people’ that someone from his family contested for the Kannauj seat after he vacated it to take charge as CM. The SP also did well in the UP assembly elections in March. With no Congress candidate (and BJP yet to field its own), Dimple stands a chance to keep the Yadav flag flying high in Kannauj.

It may be recalled that at the UPA-II's third anniversary dinner, Mulayam was seen sharing the stage with UPA chief Sonia Gandhi. The Congress is likely to use Mulayam as a bait to counter ally Trinamool Congress (and Mamata Banerjee’s) constant threats of a pull out. Mulayam is likely to get a berth in government in exchange. Looks like it’s going to be win-win situation.
In 2008, the Samajwadi Party played saviour when the Left withdrew support as Congress went ahead with the Indo-US nuclear deal. With the 2014 Lok Sabha polls coming up, who knows?

Dimple Yadav, wife of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, on Tuesday filed her nomination for the Lok Sabha by-election from Kannauj where the Congress has decided not to put any candidate.

Accompanied by her husband, 35-year-old Dimple, who suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Congress' Raj Babbar in the by-election for the Firozabad parliamentary seat in 2009, filed the papers before the returning officer.

The Congress has decided not to field any candidate against Dimple in Kannauj.Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said, "We had not contested the seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha election and we are not contesting it now."
The Kannauj by-election, being held on June 24, has been necessitated following the resignation of Akhilesh Yadav after his election to the Legislative Council.
Dimple, who was in Kannauj to file her nomination, promised to work honestly for development of the constituency.



Attacking the Bahujan Samaj Party government, Dimple said due to its "corrupt" practices the previous government had put the state on backward track and made the people of the country "ashamed".

"I want to seek blessing of the people who have earlier trusted netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) and Akhilesh. I am your beti (daughter), sister and bhabhi (sister-in-law), you should take election campaign in your hand and make me victorious," she said.

"Our party has no difference in its words and actions. We do what we say and development will remain our agenda," she said.

Earlier addressing a rally along with his wife, the chief minister said he would try to change the face of the state in the next five years.

"You all have seen the state budget. We have fulfilled promises made in the party manifesto in about three months time. We have a lot of time left and our government will change the face of the state in the remaining time. I am confident that people will give us another chance after five years," he said.





Terming Dimple's loss in the Firozabad by-poll as a "bad experience", Yadav said though all wanted her to win the elections, her first experience was not good.
"People of Kannauj used to tell me that had you fielded Dimple from here, she would have entered Parliament. I want you to make history this time by ensuring her victory with a huge margin as the country was keenly observing the by-elections," Yadav said.
The CM said his government would ensure all-round development of the constituency, which had always supported Samajwadi ideology.
Striking an emotional chord with locals, the chief minister said that people of Kannauj made history by making him the youngest MP, then youngest party president and now youngest chief minister. "I will not be able to come here as a model code of conduct is in force. If I come media will raise the matter. I urge all the people to support Dimple," he said.
Noting that the Lok Sabha polls were not far, Akhilesh said, "These by-elections are for a few months only. If the 2014 polls are held six months earlier, we don't have much time."
Alleging that the previous government did nothing on the power generation front, Yadav said that not a single plant was started in the previous regime. "We are working hard in this direction and trying to ensure better power scenario in the state. You people might be witnessing a change as you are getting more electricity. The medical college in your area will also be started soon," he said.
Alleging that some officers of previous regime were not serving the people, Yadav said that a lot of changes have to be made so that the common man gets relief from day-to-day problems.

Mr Yadav has represented Kannauj for three successive times in the Lok Sabha. In 2009, Akhilesh had contested from two parliamentary constituencies - Kannauj and Firozabad. He won both seats, but relinquished the Firozabad seat. His wife then contested the by-election from there. She lost to the Congress's Raj Babbar.

Interestingly, the Congress has decided not to field any candidate against Dimple. Even the BSP has so far not put out their party candidate's name. The BJP has however fielded a candidate from Kannauj.

Kannauj goes to the polls on June 24. There is just one day left for the nominations to be filed.

Talking about other decisions made by parliamentary board, Mr Ram Gopal said the board had decided that the party workers would be free to contest local body polls, but they would not be authorised to use the party symbol.

He said that a large section of the workers were of the view that they should be allowed to contest local body polls like panchayat elections.

"Conceding to the demands of the workers the board decided that the workers would be free to contest elections, but no one will be authorised to do so on the party symbol," Mr Ram Gopal said.

The SP leader said it was also decided that the two-day national executive meeting would be held in Kolkata from July 10. On presidential elections, he said no decision had been

Lucknow: Dressed in a simple green sari, her hair tied back, her husband by her side, Dimple Yadav addressed a huge rally in Kannauj in Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday morning. Like any politician about to contest an election, she reminded the gathering of their special connection. "I want to thank all of you... for many of you, I am 'Bhabhi' (sister-in-law)", she said. (See pics)

Mrs Yadav will contest the Lok Sabha election from Kannauj, a constituency represented thrice by her husband Akhilesh till he won an outsized victory in the recent state elections and took over as chief minister of the state. Mr Yadav, who at 39 is UP's youngest chief minister, had to vacate his Lok Sabha seat to become a member of the state assembly.

Mrs Yadav, 35, hopes to replace him. She filed her nomination on Tuesday morning. Mr Yadav said, "I cannot campaign for my wife so I appeal to the people of Kannauj to make Dimple win." As the couple talked to NDTV, Dimple returned the favour - she scored her husband's government of almost three months an eight on ten on performance. (Watch) And though Mr Yadav says he will not have the time to campaign much for his wife, she was quick to highlight her main advantage: "As the chief minister's wife, I am the best option for working for the people of this area."

    Dimple Yadav files nomination for Lok Sabha by-poll



The election is scheduled for June 24. In a gesture loaded with meaning, the Congress has decided not to put up a candidate against Mrs Yadav. "We had not contested the seat in the 2009 Lok Sabha election and we are not contesting it now," Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh said. He pointed out that the Congress had also not fielded a candidate against Mr Yadav's father, Mulayam Singh, in the Lok Sabha election for Mainpuri.

As head of the Samajwadi Party, Mulayam Singh provides external support to the Congress-led UPA government. In recent weeks, as tension between the Congress and its ally Mamata Banerjee has peaked, Mulayam Singh has been seen as a possible white knight. He has said that he will not join the UPA, but at a recent dinner hosted by the PM for members of the UPA, Mulayam Singh was shown preferential treatment. He was on stage with other UPA members even though he does not participate in the government; then he was seated at UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's dinner table.

His daughter-in-law is unlikely to take her election for granted, even though Uttar Pradesh voted for her husband in record numbers. In 2009, her husband effortlessly won two Lok Sabha seats - Kannauj and Firozabad. He chose to represent the former in Parliament, and she was handpicked to contest the by-election for the latter. Firozabad was said to be unhappy at being dumped by Mr Yadav and the Congress muscled in, fielding ex-Samajwadi Party man and actor Raj Babbar against Dimple Yadav. The party then made a focused effort to ensure her defeat; even Rahul Gandhi had campaigned for Mr Babbar, who won. In the run-up to the Assembly polls in UP, Mulayam Singh had said after Mrs Yadav's defeat in 2009 that the women of the Yadav household would not enter electoral politics again.

Former chief minister Mayawati has not yet named her candidate for Kannauj. The BJP has fielded Jagdeo Singh Yadav.

Akhilesh and Dimple were married in November 1999. They have three children, Aditi and twins, Arjun and Tina.
