Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav today said that he has no plans to start a new political party as of now.
He, however, added that he “doesn’t agree with many decisions” made by his son Akhilesh Yadav.
Addressing a press conference at the Ram Manohar Lohia Trust office in Lucknow, Mulayam said, “I am not forming a new party as of now”.
When asked about how he felt about the current leadership of the party, Mulayam said that, “He is my son, so my blessings are with him, but I don’t agree with his decisions,” said the party patriarch.
On Saturday’s violence at the Banaras Hindu University, Mulayam said that law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh has worsened.
“None of the promises made by the govt were fulfilled in 3 yrs of its governance. Petrol-diesel prices skyrocketed,” he added.
Earlier, there were reports that Mulayam Singh Yadav may float his own party with brother Shivpal Yadav.
The feud within the Yadav clan took a turn for the worse after Mulayam dumped Akhilesh loyalist Ram Gopal Yadav from the post of secretary of the Lohia Trust and appointing Shivpal Yadav in his place.
