No One Is Above Mulayamji, We Respect His Decision: Amar Singh
Senior Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Amar Singh finally broke his silence on the Yadav family feud, saying, “Mulayamji has made a statement, there is no one above him and we respect his decision.”
With party leaders critical of Amar Singh’s alleged role in the current feud, senior SP leader Shivpal Yadav had defended him by saying an organisation is strengthened by taking everyone along.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, who had stripped his uncle Shivpal of key portfolios after SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav made him state unit chief, had blamed an “outsider” for the crisis, hinting towards Singh. On Saturday Akhilesh restored all but one portfolio to Shivpal Yadav and promised to support him as SP’s state unit president.
