Former Uttar Pradesh minister Shivpal Yadav on 5 May confirmed that he was taking hand back from the Samajwadi Party and starting his own party and former chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav. A day after Shivpal controversy by accusing nephew and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav of not handing over the rights of the party to supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shivpal said that Mulayam will head the secular front to be formed to ensure social justice.

Shivpal Yadav will form a new party ‘Samajwadi Secular Morcha’ to be headed by Mulayam.

Shivpal said, “In order to restore his (Mulayam) lost dignity and to bring all the Samajwadis together, there will soon be an announcement of this secular front in Lucknow.” Shivpal will soon be meeting state and national level leaders regarding the same. The party will also include minorities, farmers and youth.

“Akhilesh had promised to hand over the party to ‘netaji’ (Mulayam). He should now do so and we all will strengthen the SP. I had also given him three months’ time. Otherwise, I will constitute a new secular front,” PTI quoted Shivpal as saying. Shivpal, who had a bitter spat with his nephew Akhilesh in the run-up to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election this year and who had made a public spectacle of the showdown, had recently said he would soon launch a campaign to unite “samajwadis“.

“When corrupt persons and officials join hands with government, harassment of people begins and such a thing had happened in the previous government. It has also started in the present regime. I will meet the chief minister and apprise him of the situation,” he said.

The Samajwadi Party contested the polls under Akhilesh’s leadership but suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the BJP. Post the election defeat, uncle Shivpal held Akhilesh and Rahul’s alliance responsible for a loss in election.

It will be a matter to see what comes out from SP inside of Akhilesh.
