Samajwadi Party Cadres Root For Akhilesh As CM
The Samajwadi Party, which obtained an unassailable majority in the recent elections for the Uttar Pradesh assembly, plans to meet on Saturday to elect the new chief minister.
The party cadres, however, are overwhelmingly supporting Akhilesh Yadav as the next chief minister as he had single-handedly rejuvenated the party and winning 223 seats.
SP general secretary Naresh Agarwal is proposing Akhilesh as CM, while party seniors Azam Khan and Mulayam’s younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav have not backed the peoposal.
The issue is likely to be settled at the CLP meeting to be held on March 10.
