Mulayam, Akhilesh to knock EC doors for 'cycle'


New Delhi:The Samajwadi Party family war today reached the capital, with its veteran leader Mulayam Singh Yadav arriving here to file his claim before the Election Commission for the party's 'cycle' electoral symbol.
Mr Yadav's younger brother Shiv Pal Yadav and his party colleague Amar Singh have also reached here to devise their strategy.
From the Akhilesh side, Prof Ram Gopal Yadav was expected to approach the Election Commission.
Both Mr Amar and Mr Shivpal have expressed their loyalty to 'Netaji' Mulayam Singh Yadav.
