Singh Yadav has most likely convinced his party to elect Akhilesh Yadav as
the next Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. According to sources, the
Samajwadi Party Chief has convinced senior party leaders to endorse his
son for the coveted post.
A section of party leaders had wanted
Akhilesh as the new chief minister, crediting with the party’s change of
fortunes with his spirited campaign before and during the elections.
However, some senior leaders, such as Mulayam’s younger brother Shivpal
Yadav and the party's Muslim face Azam Khan, were said to be having some
reservations about this demand.
Up-till-now from party
leaders’s statements- especially Akhilesh-it seemed as though Mulayam
would become the CM. However, since Friday, the junior Yadav’s statement
has set tongues wagging. Akhilesh said, “The legislature party will meet
tomorrow where the leader will be chosen.”
