In a new development to the entire Yadav feud, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday decided to reinstate his uncle and state president Shivpal Yadav back into the cabinet along with three other ministers who were suspended during the weekend.
The other ousted ministers who will be inducted into the cabinet again include Narad Rai, Om Prakash and Shadab Fatima.
This fresh twist came to the Yadav feud came in a day after party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav made several efforts to broker a truce between the two factions within the party.
Mulayam’s efforts to strike a truce between his son and brother hit several hurdles after Akhilesh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav indulged in an open spat on the dais at the party meeting venue.
Meanwhile, Former Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav attacked SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for praising Amar Singh and claiming that he saved him from going to jail.
“The comments praising Amar Singh are nonsensical. Mulayam singh is jealous of Akhilesh Yadav as Akhilesh is more popular,” Ram Gopal told the media.
Ram Gopal said that he has asked Akhilesh Yadav to start campaigning as there is no Samajwadi Party without him.
