Comedian Raju Srivastava returns Samajwadi Party Lok Sabha ticket
Stand up comedian Raju Srivastava Tuesday returned the Samajwadi Party Lok Sabha ticket to contest from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh saying he was not getting enough support from the local units of the ruling party.
Srivastava was given the party ticket last year and had already started his election campaign.
Sources said Srivastava was unhappy with the local leaders who had refused to promote him and help him expand base. While the SP leadership, including party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, apparently asked him to stay put he decided to quit.
A senior leader told IANS that the party too was waiting for the comedian to call it a day as the contest on each seat had become important.
