New Delhi : Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday added more drama to power tussle in the party by appointing Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh as party's general secretary.

The move can be considered as a clear warning to his son Akhilesh Kumar that Party runs on father’s command. 

Two days back Akhilesh Yadav had allued Amar Singh saying outsiders are interfering in personal matters of the party.

Amar's rapid elevation in the party from which he was expelled six years ago is seen as a major victory for the “Mulayamwadi“ faction over the “Akhileshwadis“.


# Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh back in Samajwadi Party as party general secretary.

# The announcement of his appointment came in form of a hand-witten letter by Mulayam Singh Yadav.

# The letter was mailed to the media by Mulayam Singh’s brother Shivpal Singh Yadav office.

# On Monday, Shivpal Yadav had sacked seven members of Akhilesh Yadav team.

# Over 50 officebearers of the SP's four allied organisations had resigned from their posts in protest against the seven sackings by Shivpal and had pledged support to Akhilesh. 

# It has been learned that these members wrote their resignation with blood.
