Barely two hours after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh filed his nomination papers with almost no rival in sight, Poonam Sinha, wife of actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha, arrived in Lucknow on Tuesday and headed straight to the Samajwadi Party office to formally become a member of the party.

SP MP Dimple Yadav was present at the party office and gave the membership to Poonam Sinha. Later, Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav also arrived at the party office and had a meeting with Poonam Sinha.

Samajwadi Party sources said that Poonam Sinha would file her nomination papers on Thursday and she would be the SP-BSP-RLD candidate from Lucknow. Congress was likely to support her.

The Congress decision not to field any candidate from the state capital paves the way for a one-on-one face-off between Rajnath Singh and Poonam Sinha.

There are four lakh Kayastha voters and 1.3 lakh Sindhi voters in Lucknow, apart from 3.5 lakh Muslims. Poonam Sinha is a Sindhi while her husband Shatrughan Sinha is a Kayastha.
