SP feud worsens: Pro-Akhilesh Yadav MLC expelled


Uttar Pradesh/Nagpur: Sending a strong message to those rebelling against it, Samajwadi Party today expelled MLC Udayveer Singh, who had written a letter to party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, demanding that Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav be made its national president.

“Udayveer Singh has been expelled from the party for six years for his undignified and indisciplined behaviour,” state party spokesman Ambika Chaudhary said.

The party will not tolerate undignified behaviour and indiscipline. It has reached where it is in 25 years because of discipline, Chaudhary said.

In the four-page letter to the party supremo earlier this week, Udayveer had said, “SP state president Shivpal Yadav and other members of his family have misled you (Mulayam) and hatched a conspiracy against CM Akhilesh, who should be made party national president and given all the powers.”

Asked about his expulsion from the party, the MLC said, “I will give my version only after getting the letter.”

He said he had no regret about the points raised by him in the letter.
