The Samajwadi Party on Thursday reinstated its suspended leader Ram Gopal Yadav back into the party. The decision was taken ahead of crucial Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, which is expected to be held early next year. After being taken back he will continue his earlier role as party general sectary. On being taken back, Ram Gopal Yadav said this had to happen as he has done a lot of work for the party and will continue to do so. Thanking party supremo and cousin Mulayam Singh Yadav, he said that the former was never against him in the party.
Last month he was suspended by the party for anti-party activities for six years. After being suspended he had said that his nephew and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is the future of the party and without him, the ruling party will not be able to sustain. Speaking a day after he was suspended from the Samajwadi Party for six years, Ram Gopal Yadav said there is no CBI case filed against him or any his family members.
The confrontation within the first family of the party became public during a party conference in November when both Chief Minister and his uncle Shivpal Yadav traded accusations at each other. It all began after Akhilesh sacked his uncle from the council of ministers after the later was made Uttar Pradesh unit chief of the party.
