Akhilesh should step down as SP chief: Aparna

Earlier in the day Mulayam Singh Yadav who was in Mainpuri was asked about Shivpal Yadav's decision to form a new party with him (Mulayam) as the chief, to which he responded by saying efforts should be made to strengthen the Samajwadi Party.

In his reaction, Akhilesh Yadav said he welcomes more "secular politics", and added, "I don't know what shape this will take".

"The Congress party did not leave a single chance to ruin my life and Akhilesh formed an alliance with the same party for the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections", Mulayam said at public rally.

"Samajwadi Party is quiet and is not registering any protest against the BJP government at present".

After the SP's drubbing in the February-March assembly elections, Mulayam Singh Yadav's younger brother Shivpal Yadav has been flexing his political muscle and has voiced his criticism of Akhilesh openly.

The AAP today alleged that a big conspiracy was being hatched against it by the BJP through sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra and said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would not resign over the "baseless allegations".

Deb Matthews , Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and Dr. All donations will go to the Canadian Mental Health Association.

The decision of the expulsion of six Samajwadi Party ministers came soon after Shivpal announced his new party.

"I should have become the chief minister".

The Samajwadi Party founder said the leadership of the party would be in the hands of youth in future and added that he would again talk to Shivpal to sort out the issues. "The core vote bank of SP stands to loosen, if not divided completely, if Shivpal breaks away or even gets expelled from the party". The party will also include minorities, farmers and youth. We would have won the UP polls with full majority if I was the chief minister.

Mulayam admitted that Shivpal was angry but stressed that the latter had worked hard for the party.

Aparna's statement is likely to further intensify the ongoing family feud in the Samajwadi Party.
