New Delhi: A day after Shivpal Singh was made the Samajwadi Party’s state unit chief; he addressed the media in Lucknow on Wednesday.
Briefing the media, Shivpal asserted that all decisions by Mulayam will be welcomed by him.
“Whatever I’ll do, it will be first deliberated with Mulayam Singh and only then will it be acted upon,” Shivpal Singh said.
Talking about his resignation, Shivpal said, “Netaji se baat karne ke baad hi kucch nirnay lenge (I will talk to Mulyam Singh first and then take a decision). People of the state are in full support of Mulayam Singh and the Samajwadi Party, he further added.
On Tuesday, Shivpal Yadav was appointed as the party’s state unit by Mulayam Singh.
Shivpal’s appointment as the state party chief by Mulayam was seen as an act to strike a balance between his son and his brother.
Shivpal Yadav was reportedly in disagreement with his nephew on a number of issues, Akhilesh Yadav, after the removal of his close aide Deepak Singhal as Chief Secretary earlier on Tuesday.
After Shivpal Singh Yadav replaced the Uttar Pradesh CM, Akhilesh Yadav, as the state party president of Samajwadi Party (SP), the UP CM withdrew important portfolios from his uncle and current state party president Shivpal Singh Yadav.
In an official statement which was sent to Raj Bhawan and was later approved by the UP governor, Ram Naik, UP CM took away the key ministries from his uncle that included key ministries of Revenue; PWD, Irrigation & Flood Control; and Cooperatives Minister.
