Mulayam, Shivpal, Azam skip SP national executive meet
Luckow : It seems the family feud within the Yadav’s are not over. After a humiliation in the hands of BJP in the recently concluded Assembly polls, everyone thought things will cool down. But the Samajwadi Party's national executive meet in Lucknow says something else.
Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav and senior leader Azam Khan were missing from the meeting. The former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and the new chief of SP single-handedly took on the new BJP government and Yogi Adityanath.
Akhilesh said "I have no problem with the purification of the house. I just hope they don't scare away the peacocks who had flown in.
He also criticised Adityanath's quick decisions like the police's 'anti-romeo squads' that will check harassment in the state infamous for lawlessness.
In the run up to the elections, the SP was caught up in a bitter father-son feud which was dragged up to the Election Commission's office and saw Akhilesh Yadav take over the reins of the party from Mulayam Singh. The erstwhile power figure of the party for decades, Mulayam Singh, who was given the title of party mentor, then decided to pull back.
