Lucknow: The newly elected State President of Samajwadi Party Uttar Pradesh unit, Shivpal Singh Yadav today started fresh political war among the party by suspending seven youth leaders for six years who were believed to be close to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

Those who were suspended by Shivpal are Sunil Singh Yadav (MLC), Anand Bhadoria (MLC), Sanjay Lathar (MLC), Mohammad Abad (State President Youth Brigade), Brijesh Yadav (State President of Youth Jansabha), Gaurav Dubey (National President Youth Brigade), Digvijay Singh Dev (State President Student Union).

All these youth leaders have been suspended for raising objectionable comments on the supremo of Samajwadi Party, Mulayam Singh Yadav and also for their involvement in anti-party activities and indiscipline acts.

The action was taken against them after Mulayam watched the video clipping of recently concluded political crises between Akhilesh and his uncle Shivpal in which they were seen raising slogan the Samajwadi chief.
