Akhilesh Yadav meets Mulayam again

Newly elected Samajwadi Party (SP) national president Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday held a long meeting with his father and party patron Mulayam Singh Yadav in what the party sources said to resolve the differences within the family and placate his estranged uncle and senior party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav.

It was the second meeting between Akhilesh and Mulayam within the past few days.

SP sources here said that the two leaders discussed the ongoing crisis within the SP family and the ways and means to resolve them.

Sources said Mulayam asked Akhilesh to meet Shivpal and offer the latter a respectable position in the party. Shivpal was the SP national general secretary before being unceremoniously removed by Akhilesh last year.

Though Mulayam and Shivpal had chosen not to attend the recently held SP national convention, Akhilesh had claimed that both of them had ‘’blessed’’ him.
