Sa­ma­jwadi shift

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

af­ter poll rout in ut­tar Pradesh, noth­ing seems to be okay in the Sa­ma­jwadi Party. When party founder mu­layam Singh Ya­dav was not seen in the state con­ven­tion of the party, it was be­ing spec­u­lated that he was set to launch a new party. How­ever, he later dis­missed such re­ports. Mean­while, two se­nior lead­ers, Azam Khan and Beni Prasad Verma who were seen in the mu­layam Singh Ya­dav camp, were present in the event. This is hint­ing at their shift from Mu­layam to Akhilesh’s camp. Khan, who was on both the sides dur­ing the tus­sle be­tween the fa­ther and the son pub­li­cally an­nounced that he was with the in­her­i­tor of ne­taji’s legacy. Verma, who was with mu­layam dur­ing the up polls did not man­age to get the ticket for his son and his pres­ence at the event hinted a shift in the camp.
