A truce is likely in the Samajwadi Party with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav set to reinstate his uncle and state president Shivpal Yadav back into the Cabinet. Three other suspended ministers – Narad Rai, Om Prakash and Shadab Fatima – are also likely to be brought back into the fold.
As per reports, the four ministers met party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav at his residence on Tuesday. After the meeting, Shivpal addressed the reporters and said “All is well” adding that he will abide by Netaji’s decision.
At a meeting convened by SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Akhilesh broke down and vowed his support to his father, only to be countered by SP state unit chief Shivpal who alleged that the Chief Minister had once “toyed” with the idea of floating a new party and contesting elections in alliance with other outfits.
Despite Mulayam’s efforts to mellow down differences between his son and his brother, Akhilesh and Shivpal got embroiled in an open fight at the dais of the meeting.
Meanwhile, Amar Singh denied allegations that he was trying to destroy the party and said Akhilesh was a fantastic Chief Minister but he needed time to become a mass leader.
Akhilesh had publically alleged that Amar Singh was trying to get him removed from the party and the CM post.
