In what could be an indicator of changing political equations in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government has now provided Y-category security to Aparna Yadav, younger daughter-in-law of Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Aparna Bisht Yadav has also contested the assembly elections in 2017 on the SP ticket from the Cantt seat of Lucknow. The Y category entails 11 personnel standing guard and includes two PSOs.
Aparna, who got married to Mulayam’s younger son Prateek Yadav, comes from Uttarakhand applauds Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. She always heaps praises on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and CM Yogi for their “tireless work” for the people
“We had approached the state government months ago for security when we were staying with Netaji (Mulayam Singh) at his Vikramaditya Marg government accommodation. We sent a few reminders thereafter and now I am thankful to the chief minister for providing us the Y-category security,” Aparna told TOI on Sunday.
Despite becoming CM, Yogi Adityanath is a very down-to-earth person, says Aparna Yadav. It has been learnt that Aparna Yadav is fond of music and she is a trained singer. In pictures shared on Facebook, she is seen singing songs at the ceremony. Aparna loves doing social work and she also has her own NGO.
Aparna often hits the headlines for the right reason. In 2015, her selfie with PM Narendra Modi at a wedding in the Yadav clan in Saifai had also made headlines.
