  • Mulayam Singh says alliance with Congress responsible for Samajwadi Party's downfall

LUCKNOW: Announcement of former state minister Shivpal Singh Yadav "s to form a separate "Secular Samajwadi Morcha" headed by his elder brother and Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav has put Mayawati-led BSP in a dilemma over whether or not to get into a larger anti-BJP alliance that has SP at the helm.The BSP top brass is learnt to be anxious about Shivpal's plan to create a separate political entity as it could potentially weaken SP headed by Mulayam's son Akhilesh Yadav and in turn defeat the very objective of the much anticipated anti-BJP front ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections.Roundly decimated at the hands of BJP in the UP assembly elections, Mayawati had announced she was not averse to getting into an alliance with the SP and the Congress to take on BJP". "We all know who is the "Shakuni" (a villain in Mahabharat)' he said, in a veiled attack on his cousin Prof Ram Gopal Yadav who had backed Akhilesh during the family war".

The minister said, "The Congress party did not leave a single chance to ruin my life and Akhilesh formed an alliance with the same party for the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections".

"Samajwadi Party is quiet and is not registering any protest against the BJP government at present".

To a question on his brother Shivpal deciding to form a new front, he said efforts should be made to strengthen the Samajwadi Party. In addition, Akhilesh's outreach to Mayawati for a Bihar-like grand alliance to take on an ascendant BJP has not gone down well with SP's old guard, which has spent over two decades opposing the BSP chief. He also blamed the alliance with congress for the "poor" of the party. "The Samajwadi Party lost the polls because of its own fault", he added. Shivpal is also likely to meet senior leaders to tap in to discontent.

Republican Alabama Representative Martha Roby recently introduced act, which would amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. The vote for HR 1180 broke largely along party lines with the Republican majority in support and the Democrats opposing.

Sources close to Akhilesh however say he is the undisputed leader of the Samajwadi Party and that there is no space at the top of the party for anyone else. Meanwhile, insiders in the party revealed that with a unilateral declaration about the secular front by Shivpal, Akhilesh is actively considering to act against him and that includes his expulsion from the party.

Earlier in April, Shivpal had urged former state chief minister Akhilesh Yadav to embrace Mulayam as the party head again.

The party asserted that was Mishra was making baseless allegations against Kejriwal "out of desperation" after being expelled from the Cabinet.

Aparna's statement is likely to further intensify the ongoing family feud in the Samajwadi Party.
