Lucknow: A sitting MLA of ruling BSP
from Bharthana in Etawah district Shiv Prasad Yadav has
decided to retire from active politics.

"The current political situation is not in my favour.
Therefore, I have decided to retire from politics," Yadav said
in a letter.

Yadav, however, said that he would continue to support
party supremo Mayawati.

The sitting MLA was elected in 2009 by-poll elections
after defeating an SP candidate. The by-poll was held after SP
supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav vacated the seat after being
elected to Lok Sabha.
