Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party has again
changed its candidate for Lambhua seat in Sultanpur district
for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.

Surabhi Shukla would now be the party candidate in place
of Santosh Pandey for the Assembly seat, party state president
Akhilesh Yadav said.

The party has changed its candidate several times for the
seat since October. First, Santosh`s name was announced, but
after protests from his brother Anil Pandey, he was dropped in
favour of Anil. Within days, Santosh was again named as
candidate.

On November 11, he was dropped a second time and Indu
Prakash Mishra was named. Within a fortnight, the party
decided Mishra was not a strong candidate and replaced him
with Surabhi Shukla.

However, Surabhi Shukla was later again replaced by
Santosh Pandey.
