Samajwadi Party national General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav on Friday, claimed that there is no crisis in the Samajwadi Party.
Ram Gopal, who arrived in Lucknow in light of the ongoing feud in the Samajwadi Party, said that there was no rift between Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his uncle Shivpal Yadav, while hinting at a compromise.
Akhilesh was on Tuesday removed as party state chief, a position which was filled by Shivpal Yadav.
Under the peace formula said to be be brokered by Mulayam, Shivpal in turn is expected to focus on party affairs in the poll-bound state after the charge of the party unit in the state was given to him on Tuesday. Akhilesh was removed as SP chief in UP by his father that escalated into a full blown crisis.
Mulayam Singh Yadav is likely to reach Lucknow on Friday morning to have a one-on-one meeting with Akhilesh.

Amid differences with his uncle, Akhilesh was combative on the decisions taken by him that have led to internal feuds coming out in the open even as he said that there might be problems in the government, but not in the family.
Akhilesh said that he too will follow the directions of his father.
“If I have taken any decision, it was in consultation with ‘netaji’, but at times one has to apply his own mind and I too took some decisions on my own,” he said.
“As far as family is concerned, everyone abides by what ‘netaji’ (Mulayam Singh Yadav) says and will accept his words,” he added.
“There may be problems in the government, but not in the family,” he said on the sidelines of an event at his official residence.
