The Samajwadi Party has won every Lok Sabha election held since 1996 in the Baduan parliamentary constituency in Uttar Pradesh.

Salim Iqbal Shervani, a former Congress leader who joined the SP, held the Baduan Lok Sabha seat between 1996 and 2004. He left the SP in 2009. The party fielded its current chief Akhilesh Yadav’s cousin Dharmendra Yadav in the 2004 Lok Sabha election, which he won.

Dharmendra Yadav will fight again this year against BJP’s Sanghamitra Maurya and Shervani, who is fighting on a Congress ticket.
