Poonam Sinha, the wife of actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha, joined the Samajwadi Party today and is likely to contest from Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow. Last week, Shatrughan Sinha had joined the Congress after quitting BJP, his party of almost three decades.
Poonam Sinha was welcomed into the party by Dimple Yadav, the wife of Samajwadi chief Akhilesh Yadav, with just two more days before nominations close for Lucknow.
It had been speculated for long that the gathbandhan or alliance of the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal in Uttar Pradesh would go for Poonam Sinha as their candidate against Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh of the BJP.
