Written by | October 24, 2016 | 0

Lucknow: Samajwadi Party’s current situation seems to be playing out like a full-on soap opera. This became very evident as tempers flared and emotions burst out in full public display at the Samajwadi party meeting on Monday.

The meeting that was held to find a solution to the rift in the Samajwadi party that has been generated ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, seemed to generate a high amount of friction. This resulted in an angry and hurt Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to tear up publicly and engage in a shouting match with his father, Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav, took to the stage to stage and emotionally questioned his father while choking up more than once. ”You took me to these heights…Where do I go from there?”  the young Yadav questioned.  The 43-year-old alleged a conspiracy against him and implied that his uncle Shivpal Yadav , whom he sacked as minister on Sunday, was a part of it. He said, “If you had told me to go, resign, I would have gone.”

The Yadav’s verbal dual did not end there. Akhilesh continued to address his father directly and asked, “Netaji (Mulayam Singh), you taught me to fight against injustice. Why should I form a new party? This is also my responsibility – if anyone is involved in a conspiracy then we have to fight them.” This was also a bid by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister to lay to rest the rumours that he was attempting to break away from his father’s Samajwadi Party and form a new party of his own.

Akhilesh Yadav seemed to be in such a bad mood because his father, Mulayam Singh was very evidently siding with his detractors. This included Shivpal Yadav and Amar Singh.The former whom Akhilesh had expelled from the cabinet and the latter on whom Akhilesh puts the entire blame for the rift.
