According to Amar Singh, he may not be with chief minister Akhilesh Yadav but he will always be with Mulayam Singh Yadav's son Akhilesh. However, he conceded that Akhilesh was not accessible to him.
At yesterday's meeting, Mulayam sided with his younger brother Shivpal and friend Amar Singh, and reprimanded son Akhilesh but ruled out his removal as Chief Minister.
Mulayam strongly defended party MP Amar Singh, who is being blamed by the Akhilesh faction for the problems in the family, asking "why to drag him in all this?"
In a series of tweets, ANI shared Singh's perspective on a number of things that has been said about him and around him, including Akhilesh's hatred for Amar Singh, and his alleged "napunsak" remark against Ram Gopal Yadav. "New report has nothing to do with me", said Singh.
It has Shivpal and Mulayam on one side and Akhilesh and Ram Gopal on the other.
Former Tourism Minister Om Prakash Singh, one of the ministers shown the door, who was sitting by the side of Mulayam during his presser on Tuesday, left in a huff when the SP chief made this statement. There is a new breed of people who are with the CM as he is in power. But it was also announced that Shivpal will continue as the state president.
Ardent Leisure shares plummet after Dreamworld tragedy
Dreamworld officials say the theme park will not reopen tomorrow, and it can not proceed with a memorial service that was planned. Mr Golden said usually the reason most companies paid deferred shares was so they had the ability to claw back the payment.
"There is no "matbhed" (difference) or "manbhed" (ill feelings) among our leaders", Yadav said. A furious Akhilesh then sacked Shivpal and his three aides from his cabinet on October 23.
Meanwhile, Shivpal, while clarifying that there was no dispute in the state's first family, also said that he has sent a letter to the chief minister requesting him to sack Pandey from his ministry. "I will also speak" bringing the meeting to an abrupt end.
But when the two forces combine, confusion ensues as we are now seeing in the cases of the two chief ministers in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
A senior Lucknow journalist, who has tracked Mulayam since the '80s thinks that all the analysts have got their story slightly wrong as they have consistently underestimated the foxiness of Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The increasing acrimony within the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh is being keenly watched by the BJP that now seems to be shifting its focus on the BSP, keeping in the mind the 2017 Assembly elections.
