Dimple Yadav, wife of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and daughter-in-law of late Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, took oath as an MP in the Lok Sabha on Monday.
Dimple won the by-election from Mainpuri last week by defeating BJP’s Raghuraj Singh Shakya by more than 2.8 lakh votes.
This will be her third term as a Lok Sabha MP. She has been a member of the lower house twice from Kannauj.
The by-election was necessitated after the demise of Mulayam Singh Yadav on October 10.
Dimple was accompanied by her husband, Akhilesh Yadav, when she arrived in the morning to take oath.
