Mulayam Singh Yadav


Lucknow: Ahead of the crucial emergency national delegate meet called by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his political guru Ram Gopal Yadav here today, Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav has called for an urgent meeting of the party's parliamentary board here at his residence, this morning.
The parliamentary board meeting has been convened, in wake of the convention called by Mr Akhilesh, which is likely to announce some important decisions, including sacking of Amar Singh and Shivpal Singh Yadav from the party.
Sources in the party said the Parliamentary board meeting was called after Shivpal Yadav offered to resign from the post of the state party president.
Akhilesh has taken a lead against his father Mulayam during the past two days and most of the senior leaders have now gone in support of the CM, giving a big jolt to the party president.
Huge crowd has surged at the venue of the convention here today and attendence of senior leaders, who were once confidant of Mulayam, shows that the power centre in the party has shifted to the young turk.
