UP Elections 2017: Mulayam Singh Yadav surrenders before son Akhilesh Yadav
Lucknow : A day after Election Commission ruled Samajwadi Party crisis in favour of Akhilesh Yadav, father Mulayam Singh has now surrendered to the reality.
Declaring political supremacy of son in public, Mulayam Singh on Tuesday handed over list of 38-candidates he wants accommodated as SP candidates, without any rider.
With this it is clear that after Election Commission's decision Akhilesh Yadav has settled himself as an unchallenged party boss. It is now clear that Mulayam Singh won't be putting up his candidates if his demand of a meagre 38 seats was accepted.
On Tuesday, Akhilesh Yadav also joined hands with Congress vice-president and announced alliance for the upcoming UP Elections 2017.
"The Congress - Samajwadi Party alliance will form the next government in Uttar Pradesh," senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad told the media on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Congress chief ministerial candidate for Uttar Pradesh, Sheila Dikshit reiterated she would step down if asked to.
"I have said this earlier too (Monday), there can't be two chief ministerial faces, so I will step down," she said.
