New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) on Sunday released a fresh list of seven candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024. The party has fielded Amarnath Maurya from Phulpur, Ram Shiromani Verma from Shravasti, Bhishma Shankar Tiwari from Dumariyaganj, Lashmikant alias Pappu Nishad from Santkabir Nagar, Ramshankar Rajbhar from Salempur, Babu Singh Kushwaha from Jaunpur and Priya Saroj from Machhilishahr.

Earlier, the party had announced the names of its candidates for Kaushambi and Kushinagar Lok Sabha seats.

As per the information shared on the official handle of the SP on social media site ‘X’, Pushpendra Saroj has been made the party’s candidate from Kaushambi and Ajay Pratap Singh aka Pintu Sainthwar from Kushinagar.

Pushpendra is the son of SP national general secretary Inderjit Saroj. Inderjit Saroj represents the Manjhanpur assembly seat in the Kaushambi district.

Pintu Sainthwar had contested election as an SP candidate from the Deoria assembly seat in 2022. His father, late Janmejay Singh, was a BJP MLA from the same seat.

Pushpendra is pitted against Vinod Sonkar, the sitting BJP MP in Kaushambi, a reserved seat. Sonkar is seeking re-election for the third term.
