Shivpal Yadav , State –Chief of Samajwadi Party , who also holds quite a few important portfolios in the UP government, when resigned from all his posts in the party on last Thursday left everyone stunned. The possibility of the conflict in the family to such an extent was unexpected. When brewing family war spilled into the public domain SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav stepped swiftly in and resolved all the issues after conducting frequent meetings with his brother Shivpal Yadav and son Akhilesh Yadav .
The whole issue started when CM Akhilesh Yadav stripped two ministers Gaytri Prajapati , Mining minister and Rajkishore Singh, Panchayati raj minister of UP government as they were accused of corruption. This action was taken without consulting Mulayam Singh Yadav and this annoyed him. If sources are to be believed by removing Prajapati, Akhilesh annoys Mulayam Singh as Prateek Yadav’s ( Akhilesh’s step-brother) has stakes in the mining business. A day after sacking of two ministers the CM unceremoniously sacked Deepak Singhal who is said to be a part of Shivpal’s lobby.
Hours after the sacking, Akhilesh Yadav was srtipped of the post of State President. He was replaced by his uncle and later he stripped Shivpal Yadav of his key ministerial berths including PWD department on Tuesday. Shivpal Yadav then, resigned from all his posts in the party on Thursday. The supporters of both uncle and nephew started raising their voices in favour of their beloved leaders.Then, Mulayam Singh Yadav came forward and urged the supporters to stop shouting slogans and said” I built this party with sweat and blood and will not allow this”.
There were various high level door closed meetings with the party workers ,Shivpal Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav . After these meetings Shivpal Yadav regained all his posts except PWD department. Both the ministers Gayatri Prajapati and Rajkishore Singh restored their posts and all the charges were turned down. Deepak Singhal has been given the post of Chairman of State Vigilance Commission and Administrative Tribunal. Now, everything is normal in the party. With whole of this drama Akhilesh Yadav has redefined himself and has now created an image which will definetly provide him some benefits in coming UP elections. An image for which he was striving from last four and a half years he got it in a week with the help of this drama.
