UP Panchayat elections: Mulayam's first elected Dalit president after independence in Saifai village
Etawah : For the first time since independence in the village of SP Patron Mulayam Singh Yadav in Etawah district of Uttar Pradesh, Dalit caste has been elected.
Saifai, the village of former Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, has also created a new history. The village went to polls on April 19 for the first time in 50 years. In the counting of votes held today, Ramphal Valmiki, a candidate of Mulayam Singh's family, won. The gap of the victory of Ramphal was also very big. She got a total of 3877 votes while her rival Vinita got only 15 votes.
Please tell that because of former Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, Saifai is always in the discussion. It is being told that for the first time in the last 50 years, voting took place here. Earlier, there was uncontested election on the principal post here. Mulayam Singh's friend Darshan Singh Yadav was elected village head of Saifai since 1971. The seat became vacant after his death on October 17 last year. This time in the three-tier panchayat elections, this seat was reserved for the Scheduled Castes. Mulayam Singh Yadav's family supported Ramphal Valmiki in this election. Ramphal got unilateral votes. For the first time, a Dalit has become the village head in this village.
At the same time, Ramphal Balmiki claimed after winning the victory letter that his victory was the result of the blessings of the Mulayam family. Their motive now is that they will work for the village afresh in Saifai village in the coming days. After the reservation of Dalit caste unanimously, Ramphal Balmiki, an elderly man close to the leader of the leader, was fixed by the Mulayam family for the post of Prime Minister but the nomination of another woman Vinita broke the tradition of uncontested election in Saifai.
The entire Saifai village was unanimous to make Ramphal Balmik, considered extremely close to Mulayam Singh Yadav. Never before has a vote been held for the position of head in Saifai village. Darshan Singh, who has been continuously elected as Prime Minister since 1971, has been elected unopposed forever. 1971 died on October 17 last year. Ramphal has also been very close to Mulayam Singh Yadav like Darshan Singh. Ramphal Balmiki's wife, who has been associated with Mulayam Singh since 1967, has been a member of the District Panchayat many times before. Ramphal Balmiki was cleared by SP chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav after being reserved for the Scheduled Castes for the first time for the post of Saifai village head. Before this, Mulayam Singh's friend Darshan Singh has been elected as the Prime Minister since 1972. After the death of Darshan Singh in October last year, the Pradhan seat has been reserved.
In this regard, Ramphal says that the leader has been in service since 1967. Along with the leader, he has also roamed in the revolution chariot. After being declared a Scheduled Caste seat, the National President of Samajwadi Party and former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav decided for the post of Prime Minister blessed with his Mukherwind. The Saifai head seat was never reserved for this class. Here Balasakha Darshan Singh Yadav of Mulayam Singh Yadav continued to be elected unopposed head. Darshan Singh passed away last year.
