Lucknow, January 2
Intra-family feud has reached a crescendo in the ruling Party at Uttar Pradesh. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has proved his strength once again. Akhilesh supporters forcibly entered and occupied the Samajwadi Party (SP) office in Lucknow on Sunday evening.
SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav followers tried to prevent them but no use. Akhilesh supporters even locked the office barring others to enter inside. They said Akhilesh has gained hold on the party.
On the other hand, Akhilesh’s uncle Shivpal Yadav was suspended as UP party chief and Naresh was appointed in his place. With this the war between the father and son duo reached its climax.
Akhilesh, along with his uncle Ram Gopal Yadav, held a special meeting on Sunday morning and took a resolution to elect Akhilesh as party national president.
Mulayam Sing termed the meeting as ‘unconstitutional’. He sacked Ram Gopal Yadav from the party for the second time and called a party convention on January 5.
After this, Akhilesh supporters intensified their opposition and took control of the party office. His camp is confident that Akhilesh will become the supremo with the support of about 200 MLAs.
