Poonam Sinha joined the SP days after her husband and the two-time Lok Sabha MP Shatrughan Sinha quit the BJP to join Congress. Shatrughan Sinha will contest from the Patna Sahib parliamentary seat in Bihar against BJP leader and Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who is making his debut in the Lok Sabha elections.

The SP, Mayawati’s Bahujan Samal Party (BSP) and the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) led by former Union minister Ajit Singh are in alliance for the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh. The Congress, after being overlooked by the grand-alliance, announced to contest alone in the most populous state.

The BJP is looking to repeat its performance of 2014 in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls in Uttar Pradesh. The party had won in 71 Lok Sabha constituencies on its own in the state five years ago while the coalition led by the BJP had bagged 73 seats.
