Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council Member (MLC) Udayveer Singh was today expelled from the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) for six years.

Udayveer Singh was elected to the Vidhan Parishad from Etah-Mainpuri and has landed into controversy by writing a letter to SP President Mulayam Singh Yadav, asking him to step down from the party post in favour of his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
