Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav is poised to lead his party in the Lok Sabha, a senior party official announced on Saturday. This marks a significant transition as Yadav will step down from his current position as Leader of Opposition in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly.

Rajendra Chaudhary, the Samajwadi Party's chief spokesperson, said, 'It is understood that Yadav will be the leader of the party in the Lok Sabha, but the formality of choosing the leader of the parliamentary party will be completed in Delhi.' Chaudhary also confirmed Yadav's plan to resign as the assembly member representing Karhal seat in Mainpuri.

Yadav, who has now been elected to the Lok Sabha from the Kannauj constituency, addressed newly-elected MPs at the party headquarters, emphasizing the increased responsibility they carry. He assured continued advocacy for public issues, heralding a new era of positive politics.
