Samajwadi Party

The Sawajmadi Party is a regional political party in India. Formed in 1992 as a democratic socialist party and currently led by Mulayam Singh Yadav, the party has had a recent resurgence, taking a landslide victory in this year’s parliamentary elections in Uttar Pradesh, the largest state in India. The party flag features a bicycle, symbolizing the party’s connection to the average citizen, and the lead-up campaign featured a 3-day cycle rally led by Mulayam, a former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. With a majority control again in the regional parliament, Mulayam’s son Akilesh Yadav becomes the youngest Chief Minister in Uttar Pradesh’s history.
