New Delhi: The Samajwadi party on Friday fell apart with father and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav dismissing his rebel son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for anti-party activities. The party chief also sacked Samajwadi Party general secretary and Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav, a confidant and Akhilesh supporter for calling an emergency meeting of the party on January 1. Both the leaders have been banished for six years.

“To save the party, we have banished both Ram Gopal and Akhilesh Yadav for six years from the party. For us, the party is most important and our priority is to save the party,” Mulayam Singh Yadav, fringed by his brother and state unit Chief Shivpal Yadav, declared at a press conference.

Governor may ask Akhilesh to prove majority

The party chief also dismissed Samajwadi Party general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Ram Gopal Yadav, a close confidant and Akhilesh Yadav supporter for calling an emergency meeting of the party on January 1. Both the leaders have been ousted for six years. After Mulayam Singh released his list of candidates for the upcoming elections on Wednesday, a disobedient Akhilesh Yadav released his own list of candidates on Thursday, a move that infuriated his father. Earlier on Friday, Mulayam Singh Yadav had given out a show-cause notice to Akhilesh for issuing a parallel list.

Taking his father head on after being banished, Akhilesh Yadav called a meeting of SP MLAs at 9.30 am on Saturday. A split in the party is inevitable.

Sources indicated that top leaders of the party have insisted Mulayam Singh Yadav to cancel the dismissal of Akhilesh Yadav.

Ram Gopal Yadav, defying the party chief’s instruction, proclaimed that Mulayam Singh’s move to sack him and Akhilesh was “unconstitutional” and that he would go ahead with the emergency meeting on January 1.

Mulayam Singh pleased to party workers “not to attend the meeting.”  Immediately after SP chief ousted Akhilesh, the BJP swung into action and demanded that the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to resign on moral grounds.   All eyes are now on the Governor, Ram Naik, who stated he is keeping a “close watch” on the developments.

While elections dates are expected to be announced on January 3, the Governor might ask Akhilesh Yadav to prove his majority on the floor of the House in the next 72 hours.
