Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his cousin Ram Gopal Yadav have been expelled from Samajwadi Party for six years.
This was announced by Samajwadi Party supremo and Akhilesh’s father Mulayam Singh Yadav and his brother Shivpal Yadav at a press conference this evening.
Answering a pointed query, Mulayam told reporters: “Akhilesh kya maafi mangega woh toh ladta hai, pita (father) manta hoga toh dekha jayega.”
“Maine akele hi party banaya thi; Inka kya yogdaan hain? Ram Gopal aur Akhilesh Yadav party khatam kar rahe hain” Mulayam Singh further said.
Mulayam Singh has called a meeting of all candidates he has announced for the forthcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly election.
Ram Gopal Yadav’s instant reaction to this development was that he does not see any scope for compromise now.
Earlier, notices were served to both Akhilesh and Ram Gopal.
