Chasm in UP

The rift in UP’s ruling Samajwadi Party grows wider; Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav skips crucial party meeting called by his uncle Shivpal Yadav to strategise for ensuing Assembly elections; instead meets party delegates separately to apprise them of his Rath Yatra from November 3.

The Yadav family feud in Uttar Pradesh keeps going through its daily twists and turns.

While efforts were made on friday by uncle and SP UP unit chief Shivpal to extend an olive branch by saying Akhilesh will remain Chief Minister if the party wins in next year’s assembly polls..it didn’t melt the CM..

He stayed away from a key party meet called by Shivpal.

However, shortly after Shivpal concluded his meeting, Akhilesh summoned the same participants to to the Chief Minister’s residence in the evening to advise them to make preparations for his state-wide Rath Yatra starting November 3rd.
