  • Akhilesh Yadav likely to be re-elected as SP's national president

On this note, Akhilesh Yadav was addressing a press conference, a day ahead of his party's two-day national convention, where he is set to be re-elected the SP chief.

Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday trained his guns at Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government for demonetisation and backed Yashwant Sinha's claims regarding the same. Party's convention begun yesterday at Agra.

During the meeting, the party members will be discussing the amendment of party's constitution to extend the tenure of the party chief to five years and passage of political and economic resolutions.

The party had witnessed a bitter feud between Mr. Akhilesh and Mr. Shivpal and this infighting adversely affected the party in the Assembly polls earlier this year.

Much along the expected lines, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav was today unanimously chosen as the party's national president for a five-year term.

As the party shift gears in terms of leadership, its new leader Akhilesh is likely to don a new aggressive avatar and seek greater visibility in the run-up to the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "He (Shivpal) gave me blessings and congratulated me".

The relationship between Shivpal and Akhilesh grew bitter in September previous year when Mulayam replaced Akhilesh with Shivpal as state party chief.

The fissures in the father-son relationship, however, remain as Mulayam Singh was conspicuously missing from the scene before the key party convention despite Akhilesh personally inviting him for the meet.

Previously, both Mulayam and his younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav were not invited to the party's 8th state party convention in Lucknow on September 23.
