Etawah: The Samajwadi Party, founded by Mulayam Singh Yadav 25 years back, today witnessed a split when his younger brother Shivpal Yadav announced formation of a new political front called 'Samajwadi Secular Morcha'.
The new political outfit floated by Shivpal Yadav will be headed by Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The development comes after several months of infighting within the party, compounded by a crushing electoral defeat in UP, after a meeting between Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav here at the residence of their brother-in-law Ajant Singh Yadav.
The new front would be headed by Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Shivpal Yadav, who was in the news over a bitter struggle for power over the Samajwadi Party with his estranged nephew and former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, said the new party will bring all 'Samajwadis' on a single platform.
