Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday said that in the 2024 Lok Sabha election, people voted for protecting the Constitution, reservation and democracy. "The votes were cast to save the Constitution, democracy and reservation, and we hope that by walking on the path of social justice we will be able to fulfil the dreams of Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) and Samajwadis," Akhilesh Yadav told ANI.

Asked about if the INDIA bloc would be able to form the government at the Centre, he said that it was all about numbers. "Yes, I am going to Delhi (to attend the INDIA bloc meeting). It is all a matter of numbers (govt formation). The public has rejected negative politics. We aimed to stop the BJP. I thank the public for this and their cooperation," he said.

Akhilesh Yadav won the Kannauj Lok Sabha constituency with a vote margin of 1,70,922 defeating BJP's Subrat Pathak who was the incumbent. "I want to assure the people of Kannauj that speed of development that Samajwadis gave to Kannauj, we will take it forward," Akhilesh Yadav said.
