New Delhi: In Delhi as Akhilesh Yadav loyalists Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agrawal arrive at the Election Commission office to stake claim to the party symbol — cycle, Mulayam Singh addressing the press clarified that there was no problem between him and his son (Akhilesh Yadav). He said only one person was causing the rift in the party. “Akhilesh is my son. There are a few differences within the party which we will solve soon. The Election Commission will decide on our symbol,” Mulayam Singh said.
