Shivpal excluded from SP legislature party meet, says will talk to his supporters
Indicating continued strains in the first family of the Samajwadi Party, senior party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav on Saturday said he was not invited for the important meeting of the legislature party, in which Akhilesh Yadav was unanimously elected the leader.
"I have no information about the meeting. I tried to contact the SP leaders but I have not got any information about it," Shivpal told the media here.
"Under these circumstances my going to the legislature party meeting will not be correct," he said. The SP MLA from Jaswant Nagar seat said he will work according to the will of the party, but at the same time wondered why he was not invited to the meet while all the other MLAs were.
The younger brother of SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav said that he fought on the party's bicycle symbol and even campaigned for it in Karhal and many other places.
"Despite this, I don't know why I was not informed about the legislature party meeting," he said.
