Ram Gopal Yadav as suspended from the Samajwadi Party for six years.
Suspended Samajwadi Party leader and cousin of Ram Gopal Yadav on Tuesday reiterated 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.
When asked to comment on Amar Singh who is in the eye of the storm, because of the ongoing confrontation within the party, Ram Gopal said only Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal can tell what was so special about him.
Yesterday, the party hold a meet in Lucknow, where the confrontation within the party came out n the open, just months ahead of Crucial Assembly polls in the state which is expected to be held early next year. During the meet when Akhilesh Yadav rejected rumours of him planning to float another party, his uncle and senior Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav rebuked him saying the chief minister was lying. Akhilesh did not even heed to party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to call off their personal issues. Later in the day, Mulayam had few rounds with Akhilesh and Shivpal at his residence.
Last month Akhilesh had dropped Shivpal from the council of ministers, after which the later was taken aback following Mulayam Singh Yadav’s interference. The chief minister once again sacked his uncle as minister on Sunday along with three others, after which the feud within the party became public.
