Samajwadi Party chief, Mulayam Singh Yadav has expelled Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for six years from the party. The SP supremo said, “To save the party, we have expelled both Ramgopal and Akhilesh Yadav for six years from the party. For us party is the most important and our priority is to save the party.” He has released a separate list of candidates for the upcoming UP elections and has added that he took strong exception to the “gross indiscipline” shown by party leaders Ramgopal Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav.
Criticising the support Akhilesh has for Ramgopal Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the Akhilesh has not understood that his future was being ‘finished’ by him. He pointed out that Ramgopal Yadav’s move to call for an emergency meeting was unconstitutional and no one other than the party chief has the right to call such a meeting. He further added, “I have worked really hard to make this party, what was their role in this? I work hard and they reap the fruits?”
Reportedly, the decision of who will be the new Chief Minister of the state was raised, to which Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the party will decide on that later.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had, on Thursday, released a separate list of Samajwadi Party candidates.
