The rift between Samajwadi party’s member Shivpal, patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and son Akhilesh Yadav Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh created ruckus among the state 2-3 months before. Family crisis engender hustle-bustle situation in the state when Akhilesh Yadav and Ram Gopal were expelled from the party by Mulayam Yadav.
After making number of statements in the media Mulayam said, “Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav doesn’t understand that Ramgopal is trying to weaken him. Slamming the supporters of his son Akhilesh, Mulayam said, “Those who are raising slogans for the Chief Minister have no idea how the party reached where it is today”.
However, CM Akhilesh thought to make new party for the assembly elections 2017 but after some days’ overwhelming majority of MLA’s rallied for Akhilesh to get back in the party after reconciling with the father and Party chief Shivpal. With no choice Mulayam took his own order back for the second time in the past months.
After solving family matters, now Samajwadi Party (SP) made an alliance with Congress to participate in the upcoming elections together in the state. In the move, both parties hopes for the consolidate voters of the state and also seeking votes of the muslim voters. Addition to the alliance Samajwadi Party and Congress allocated seats among them, where congress will contest 115 seats and 298 seats will be contested by Samajwadi Party.
