Lucknow: Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav wrote a letter to SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and said only Akhilesh can help in winning upcoming state assembly election in 2017.
Ram Gopal cautioned him that he (Mulayam) would be held responsible if the party faced defeat in the forthcoming assembly elections.
The ongoing tussle in Samajwadi family took a new turn on Saturday after a news channel puts SP behind BJP and BSP in a recent pre-poll survey.
The General Secretary wrote a short letter a day after Mulayam said that MLAs and parliamentary board would select the next CM. He mentioned in it that Akhilesh was undoubtedly the most popular leader of the state and under him UP has seen unprecedented development works.
Ram Gopal said if SP has to win the elections, Akhilesh must be made its CM face.
