New Delhi, January 9: The two clans of Yadav Pariwar and Samajwadi Party met the election commission separately today. While both Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhil Yadav have claimed Cycle symbol from EC, the senior Yadav has ruled out a rift with son, whatsoever.

Distancing himself from contentious Ramgopal Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav also sent a letter to Rajya Sabha chairman intimating him about the expulsion of Ramgopal Yadav from SP. Meanwhile, the latter refused to comment on Netaji’s remarks.

Earlier in the day, Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav along with brother Shiv pal Yadav and aide Amar Singh on Monday reached Election commission’s office in Delhi.

After meeting Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi, Mulayam Singh said that one person (Ram Gopal Yadav) was creating problems in the party.

“There are some who have influenced my son (Akhilesh). I had a talk with him last night and also in the morning. There is no dispute between my son and me. There is only a bit of dispute within the party, not much. Only one person is responsible for this. But that will be resolved soon,” Mulayam Singh told the media.

Election Commission will decide on the symbol: Mulayam Singh Yadav said on the matter.

Later on, Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agrawal arrived at Election Commission office to share their side of story.

“We had come to the Election Commission to urge them to expedite the decision as nominations will start soon,” said Ram Gopal Yadav outside the EC office.

Yesterday Mulayam Singh had said that, I am the national president of Samajwadi Party and Akhilesh Yadav is the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Shivpal Yadav is still the president of Samajwadi Party’s Uttar Pradesh unit.
