New Delhi: After high drama that took place in the Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh on Friday announced that his uncle Shivpal Yadav will be given back all his previous portfolios. He even declared that Gayatri Prajapati, the sacked minister will also be inducted in the cabinet.
Earlier on Thursday, Shivpal Yadav resigned from the post of Uttar Pradesh Samajwadi Party chief and also from the cabinet.
Speaking to media, after meeting his elder brother Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav said, "I have spoken to Netaji and put my views in front of him. All is well now and we are united again. All his orders have almost been implemented. Starting tomorrow all will be back to the old ways."
The younger brother of SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav, was left powerless after Akhilesh Yadav kept the PWD portfolio with himself, Avdhesh Prasad was given the charge of Irrigation and Flood Control department and Balram Yadav additional charge of Revenue and many other departments, currently being held by Shivpal Yadav thus, bringing down the number of ministries held by him from ten to just two. However, Shivpal Yadav held these plump portfolios when the SP was in power.
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.
