Mulayam Singh Yadav's daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav trails Rita Joshi (BJP) in Lucknow Cant seat.
Aparna is contesting against Bharatiya Janata Party's Rita Bahuguna Joshi in her debut into politics.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had earlier this month campaigned for his sister-in-law Aparna Yadav, who is contesting assembly election from the Lucknow Cant, Samajwadi Party ticket.
Mulayam Singh Yadav too had earlier, appealed to voters for his daughter-in-law Aparna, who is considered a part of the Shivpal Singh Yadav camp.
"She is my daughter-in-law... Keep my honour and ensure her victory from the seat," he said.
