The simmering feud within Samajwadi Party has resurfaced with former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav's uncle Shivpal Yadav announcing he will form a new political outfit - a Samajwadi Secular Morcha - which will be headed by his brother Mulayam Singh Yadav. Akhilesh came out with a cryptic reply, saying he very well know "aasteen ke saanp" (traitors).

After Samajwadi Party patron Mulayam Singh Yadav indicated that his son Akhilesh Yadav's move to ally with Congress left no stone unturned in ruining his life, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday dubbed it to be yet another episode of the "unending saga of a family drama".

Ramesh was the SP's Noida unit chief, while Kallu was the party's Noida Yuvjan Sabha president. He also blamed the alliance with congress for the "poor" of the party.

The Spurs Will Have to Continue Playoff Push Without Tony Parker
On Wednesday, Parker became the ninth player in National Basketball Association postseason history to reach 4,000 career points. Although the loss of Tony Parker is a major blow to the San Antonio Spurs, there is some hope for Spurs fans.

Hitting out at Mishra over his allegations of corruption against Kejriwal, Singh claimed Mishra had himself written a letter to the ACB in September a year ago, saying that the anti-graft body was trying to implicate the chief minister in the water tanker scam under pressure even when his name was not mentioned in the evidence. The party would have done better if it had gone alone, he added.

Shivpal will soon be meeting state and national level leaders regarding the same. Akhilesh should take the challenge thrown by Shivpal head on and use the opportunity to remove the deadwood, modernise the party agenda and rebuild SP on his own terms.

A day earlier SP State president Naresh Uttam expelled with the "approval" of Mr. Akhilesh, five SP leaders, including Dipak Mishra, a key aide of Mr. Shivpal and also his alleged ghost-writer. We would have won the UP polls with full majority if I was the chief minister. On Sunday, Akhilesh sacked Deepak Mishra and Mohammad Shahid for "anti-party activities". "As for the Samajwadi Party, it has passed every test and will continue to do so".
