Samajwadi Party still in turmoil, here are few expected developments:- Uttar Pradesh’s ruling Samajwadi Party was in turmoil on Monday as the party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav had publicly pulled up his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav at a meeting which had ended on a fiery note with a sacked minister Shivpal Yadav calling Akhilesh a “liar”. However, further softening of stances were also seen as the day progressed.
Here are the latest developments
Sources have revealed that Akhilesh has apparently agreed to further soften his stand and reinstate the sacked ministers.
Ram Gopal Yadav has today said that Mulayam has claimed that Amar Singh saved the party supremo in difficult times in false and baseless.
Nameplate of Ram Gopal Yadav has also been removed from SP party office. The Shivpal and Akhilesh factions within the once united party came to further blows ahead of the meeting which was called by Mulayam Singh, who made it clear that he would never let go either his brother Shivpal Yadav or his long-time aide Amar Singh, who the Chief Minister cannot stand.
The Monday meeting seemed to be a desperate attempt by Mulayam Singh in order to stamp his authority on the Samajwadi Party ahead of the crucial assembly elections early next year but it could not do away with the bitterness within.
Earlier, while defending Amar Singh and Shivpal Yadav, who was further sacked on Sunday from the cabinet by CM Akhilesh Yadav with his three other ministers, Mulayam Singh made it clear that Akhilesh Yadav would remain the state’s Chief Minister.
He has also warned that if the party failed to further overcome its cracks, the ugly unprecedented faction fighting would help the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in order to return to power in the country’s most populous state.
However, Akhilesh Yadav had reluctantly hugged him and even touched Shivpal Yadav’s feet. Soon after that Mulayam Singh announced that Akhilesh Yadav will not be removed as the Chief Minister.
