Shivpal Yadav becomes SP president

New Delhi: On Tuesday, the Samajwadi Party (SP) appointed Shivpal Yadav to replace UP CM Akhilesh Yadav as the state party president. 

Prior to this, the stories of a riff between the former state party president, Akhilesh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav had surfaced after which Shivpal Yadav, the current state party president had threatened to resign from the party.

The decision of giving the command of state party president to Shivpal Yadav came from the Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Last month, while addressing a rally, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav had lashed out at his party leaders, legislators and ministers, accusing them of land grabbing and harassing poor people. Visibly angry at his party men, especially after his younger brother and PWD Minister Shivpal Singh Yadav had resigned, the Samajwadi Party chief said if Shivpal went away, the party and the government would be in grave crisis.

"Unhone pehle bhi ek baar istifa dia tha. Maine mana kar dia. Agar chale gaye hote to aisi-taisi ho jaati (He also resigned once earlier. I refused to accept the resignation. Had he gone, it would have been a crisis)," the Samajwadi Party chief said.

Uttar Pradesh will be going to polls in 2017.

Non-performing SP and BSP

Mayawati and Maulyam are opportunist and destructive leader who are giving top priority to their self interest. The regional and smaller parties are main road block in progress of this country. The illiterate, fool and immature majority voters are giving votes to these parties run by individual like Maulyam and Mayawati on basis of caste and religion even after corrupt and worst governance by SP and BSP in last 25 years resulted in acute poverty and backwardness among Muslims and Dalits in state. The people will face severe hardships like acute poverty and backwardness in future also as these parties are not capable to bring peace, progress and prosperity in state. The regional parties run by Maulyam and Mayawati are one man show party for self development and dynastic rule. The rest of workers of both parties are slaves who have no say in party and they are total at mercy of Maulyam and Mayawati. The people of UP must note that the situation will further aggravate and deteriorate if both parties are again voted to power in UP and people will never prosper and see light of progress in their life time. BJP has a chance to win UP election provided BJP govt curbs CORRUPTION immediately all over country by enforcing death penalty and seizure of illegal assets of accused.
