Day after getting job, UP SCERT chief removed
This is not the first time such a thing has happened with Shukla. During the Assembly elections last year, the SP had given her the ticket for Lambhua in Sultanpur district, only to change it; then named her again, and again dropped her. In fact, the candidate for Lambhua was changed nine times before Santosh Pandey was finally selected.
At present, Shukla is national secretary of the Samajwadi Mahila Sabha, the women’s wing of the party. During the previous SP regime, she was member of the Social Welfare Board.
Asked about the episode, the party’s state spokesperson Rajendra Choudhary said Shukla’s order had been withdrawn “for correction, a new order will be issued in 2-3 days”, adding, “It is not certain that Shukla will be reappointed on the same post. There may be some change.”
