He also said that the government and the party also did a lot of work for the people in the state under his guidance. Speaking at the function, he also expressed confidence that the party will come back to power after the Assembly polls to be held in the state from February 11 and conclude on March 8, which will be held in seven phase.

Yesterday, the father-son duo, had met in the evening to try and sort out their differences. however, the reports suggest that the talks between the two failed to get the desired results as there was no compromise formula.

As per sources, the compromise formula was floated by the Akhilesh camp included Mulayam Singh once again taking over the role of the party president, Akhilesh Yadav helping to decide the candidates for upcoming elections and Shivpal Yadav be given a national role in party affairs, giving chief minister some space in deciding the party’s affairs in the state.
