Uttar Pradesh witnessed an intense power tussle on Tuesday as the Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav snatched away key ministerial portfolios – Revenue, Irrigation and PWD – from his uncle Shivpal Yadav.

While the Irrigation Department has been handed over to Awadhesh Prasad, and Revenue to Balram Yadav, Akhilesh has kept the PWD Ministry for himself. This came hours after Shivpal replaced Akhilesh as the party’s state unit’s chief.

Shivpal Yadav addressed the media on Wednesday morning and tried his best to convince the reporters that all is well in the Samajwadi Party. With the largest state in terms of number of assembly seats to undergo elections in less than a year, things are not looking so good for the ruling party.
