Lucknow, Jan 8: Amid the ongoing unrest in the Samajwadi Party, Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday asserted that there are “no disputes” in the party.
Earlier in the day, Mulayam Singh with Shivpal Yadav met party workers at Samajwadi Party’s headquarters in Lucknow.
When Mulayam was asked about the tension in between the party he said: “There is no dispute in our party.”
Ahead of UP polls, in order to visit Election Commission to claim party symbol ‘cycle’, Mulayam along with Shivpal left for New Delhi.
As SP is divided into camps, Mulayam’s camp will probably submit its set of affidavits tomorrow which is the deadline set by Election Commission for both the camps to submit documents so that they can allot the ‘cycle’ symbol.
Yesterday, the Akhilesh faction submitted to the EC affidavits which it claimed to have signatures of “90 per cent” of legislators and delegates, including over 200 of the 229 MLAs.
On reports that Mulayam got his room locked at the party office and put up his and Shivpal’s name plates, SP state chief (Akhilesh faction) Naresh Uttam said, “their name plates were never removed”.
To another question, he said, “Akhileshji is our national president and we will contest polls under him. He was made president at national convention.”
