Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav announced on Friday night, his decision to return all portfolios of uncle Shivpal Yadav and re-induct Gayatri Prajapati as Cabinet minister. The announcements were made after the “four-point” compromise formula worked out by Mulayam Singh Yadav who said, “There can be no division in the party, till I am there.”
” Galti hui humse (I committed a mistake),” said Mulayam. “We have a big Samajwadi family. At times there is a difference of opinion, but everything has been resolved now,” he said, urging party workers to focus on winning the elections. “We have to form the next government with a clear majority, so start working for it,” he said.
The signs of patch up came after Mulayam held discussions with brother Shivpal and son Akhilesh.“Portfolios will be given back to Mr. Shivpal Singh Yadav,” Akhilesh tweeted after he had stripped him of his key ministries, triggering all out war during which Akhilesh was removed as party’s state unit chief.
Another tweet of the CM said, “Gayatri Prajapati will be inducted in the cabinet.”
Earlier too, Mulayam and Akhilesh had rejected Shivpal’s resignation from the Cabinet as well as the head of state party unit, to which he was appointed two days ago replacing Akhilesh.
Shivpal had resigned last night as a minister and as state party unit head. “Netaji (Mulayam) has heard all of us. He will talk to some others if he wants and will take decision by tomorrow,” the signs of a truce was visible when Akhilesh said at a function that he has rejected the resignation of Shivpal and he will comply with whatever his father directs.
“Netaji (Mulayam) will find a solution (to the current crisis) and everyone will accept it,” he said.
