Luckow : Everyday new turn and twist is witnessed in UP’s first family. First the family feud then the Akhilesh winning the contest in election commission. 

Just a few days, left the UP polls, Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav rubbished all rumours of feuds and said Akhilesh Yadav will be the next Chief Minister if party wins polls. 

He also said there is no difference and will start campaigning soon for the polls. 

Earlier, Mulayam had told that he would campaign for his younger brother Shivpal Yadav first.

After that, he would go to seek votes for the candidates named by his son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Former Samajwadi party state president Shivpal Yadav, after filing his nomination in Jaswantnagar last week, had announced he would form a new party after March 11 when election results are declared.

Opposition parties including the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have been alleging that the family feud in the Yadav clan is a staged attempt to deflect people's mind from lawlessness and corruption in the state.
