Raj Babbar wins Ferozabad parliamentary seat

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 08:07:18 PM, & Agencies

Ferozabad: In a major blow to Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh, Congress candidate and cinestar Raj Babbar defeated Dimple the daughter-in-law of party president Mulayam Singh Yadav in Ferozabad by-elections when the results were announced today.


Raj Babbar is declared elected from the Ferozabad Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, drubbing Samajwadi Party nominee Dimple Yadav by a margin of 85,343 votes in a triangular contest.


The Congress nominee received 3,12,728 votes whereas Dimple could get just 2,27,385 votes in the high profile by-elections. BSP candidate S P Singh Baghel was at the third spot with 2,13,571 votes.


BJP's Bhanu Pratap Singh Chauhan lost his deposit, getting only 9,261 votes.


In the Lok Sabha elections held in May, SP candidate Akhilesh Yadav had won the seat by a margin of over 67,000 votes. Dimple is the wife of Akhilesh, who had vacated the seat after being elected both from Ferozabad and Kannauj Lok Sabha seats. It was party General Secretary Amar Singh on whose behest SP decided to field Dimple against Congress candidate Raj Babbar.


One of the front leaders in SP earlier Raj Babbar revolted against the party and fought the past Lok Sabha elections from adjoining Fatehpur Sikri seat. He was defeated in the election.


This time, Rahul Gandhi - the high profile Congress General Secretary personally visited Ferozabad to campiagn for Raj Babbar.


"Elect Raj Babbar who will sit next to me in the Lok Sabha and will ensure that you get all the facilities in the constituency", Rahul Gandhi had said during the campaigning.


Rahul's extensive campaigning for Raj Babbar - a SP rebel had panicked the SP top brass and they tried hard to hold the ground in the constituency from where its candidate a couple of months back had won by a huge margin. Their every game-plan, however, failed when the counting of votes began this morning and Raj Babbar maintained the lead from the round one. Ultimately, the election officials declared Raj Babbar winner by more than 85,000 votes.
