A FIR was also registered by Fatehpur police in Uttar Pradesh which stated that about 4,452 sarees were seized from a vehicle which was registered on Prajapati’s name in the place of the receiver’s name. Reportedly, the driver also confessed that he was going to deliver these sarees to Gayatri Prajapati and he intended to distribute among the voters in Amethi.
The FIR against Gayatri Prajapati is a major setback for the ruling Samajwadi Party and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav who are continuously being attacked by the other political parties over the poor condition of law and order in the state. The first phase of UP elections saw 64% voter turnaround and the polling will be done in 7 phases ending on 11th February. Uttar Pradesh has a total of 403 constituencies and a party needs 202 seats to prove majority. Samajwadi Party led by CM Akhilesh Yadav is currently the ruling party of the state without an alliance with any other party. For the 2017 assembly elections, Samajwadi Party has made an alliance with Congress to form the government if they win.
