Lucknow : The fight within the Samajwadi Party has intensified as there is no let up in the retaliatory action when today on the second day of his new term as the state-president, Shivpal Singh Yadav expelled seven youth leaders including 3 MLCs, who are close to chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. SP state-president today expelled MLCs Anand Bhadauria, Sunil Yadav Sajan and Sanjay Lathar along with Samajwadi Youth Brigade national president Gauravf Dubey and its state president Mohammad Ebad, Yuvjan Sabha state president Brajesh Yadav and Chatra Sabha state president Digvijay Singh Deo for anti-party activities. All the seven expelled youth leaders are close to Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and they had led the protest on Saturday last to return back the post of the state president of the party to Akhilesh Yadav. They also gheraoed the house of Mulayam Singh Yadav and raised slogans against him.
This would be the ninth expulsion within two days of the leaders close to chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and SP general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav. Yesterday on day one of his office, Shivpal had expelled Ram Gopal Yadav's nephew and MLC Arvind Pratap Singh and former pradhan of Saifai Akhilesh Kumar Yadav alias Chandgiram for anti-party activities. Surprisingly, the letter of the expulsion letter, copy of which was sent to party's general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav for further action but it was not sent to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav even after he is the legislature party leader and four MLCs have been expelled by the party. Shivpal Singh Yadav talking to mediapersons here today said that he would not allow anyone to indulge in indiscipline and they will have to be punished for insulting the party's national president.
" Even if the member of our family will do wrong , they also will not be spared," he warned, with giving clear message that Mulayam Singh Yadav have given a clear verdict to his younger brother against his son Akhilesh. Earlier, Shivpal had removed the state spokesperson Rajendra Choudhury, who is also the state minister and one of the closest leader of the CM from the post and MLC Ambika Choudhury was made the new spokesperson. Similarly, state minister Arvind Singh Gope was also removed from the state general secretary. A truce between Akhilesh and his Shivpal was made on Saturday last on a cup of tea with CM returning all the departments except for PWD to his uncle while Akhilesh was made the chairman of the state parliamentary board. Talking to media after the truce, CM had said that he is the national head of all the youth wings of the party but today's action shows that he had been ignored totally. But it seems that the truce was just temporary and the real fight for power has begun within the first family.
