SP rift seems to have reached point of no return, Azam meets Mulayam

Lucknow, January 4
Infighting in the ruling Samajwadi Party seemed to have reach a point of no return as both the factions of Mulayam Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav refused to initiate any talks further today.
Though a three-hour-long meeting was held yesterday between the father and son, but it could not resolve the issue.
With Election Commission of India hinting in New Delhi that they would be taking the decision on the fight for the bicycle symbol by both the faction of SP very soon, now both the warring groups are in a fix whether to go for rapport or stick to their earlier stand. This morning again an effort was made by senior UP minister Mohammad Azam Khan when he went to the residence of Mulayam and was closetted with him for about an hour. But the meeting did not yield any result immediately. Azam was instrumental in the revoking of the expulsion of Akhilesh and Ram Gopal on Saturday last but the political scenario changed on the next day when Akhilesh removed his father from the national president post.
“I spoke to Netaji, he’s positive and wants to solve the issue,” was the only reaction of Azam Khan after meeting Mulayam this morning.
” It is good that the father and son had met yesterday and several issues would discussed openly. I am hopeful of a solution to this issue,” he further said.
Meanwhile, several leaders, including former Ministers Om Prakash Singh, Narad Rai, Ambika Choudhury, Raj Kishore Singh, UP minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati, Sadab Fatima and mafia don Atiq Ahmed met Mulayam at his residence today.
Shivpal Singh Yadav too was closetted with Mulayam for a couple of hours and both discussed the situation, watching the TV on the announcement of poll dates by the ECI.
