Samajwadi party star MPs Jaya Bachchan and Jaya Pradha along with Amar Singh campaigned for their party candidate Farhan Azmi. The young contestant is the SP candidate for the by-polls to be held on January 20 from Bhiwandi East. The temperatures are rising as the D – Day for the by polls at Bhiwandi East draws closer. The entire constituency seems to be full of banners and posters of political parties. The by polls were announced post Abu Asim Azmi – who won from two constituencies, gave up this one. His son Farhan Azmi is now contesting as the Samajwadi party from here. Winning the by polls has become a matter of prestige for the Azmis. On the other hand, the ruling Congress is doing everything to win the by polls. As the voting day comes closer, star campaigners of the Samajwadi Party got down on the roads to campaign for Farhan Azmi. This included MPs Jaya Bachchan and Jaya Pradha along with Amar Singh. As expected, their arrival ensured a massive turn out of people during the campaigning. MP Jaya Pradha spoke to NMTV News and said that Farhan’s victory will spell progress for the constituency. On the other hand, Amar Singh gave his opinion on being called mentally ill by the family members of SP Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. While this rally has further strengthen the pre-poll atmosphere is favour of Farhan Azmi but only the votes verdict will seal his fate during the elections.
