Lucknow: Cabinet portfolios that were taken away by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav will not be given back to Shivpal Yadav.
Having already rejected Shivpal Yadav’s resignation as the state party chief, Mulayam Singh added that Akhilesh Yadav would call on Shivpal, the Chief Minister’s uncle. He added that his son would never defy him.
Akhilesh Yadav also rejected Shivpal Yadav’s resignation from the cabinet as PWD Minister and pledged to follow his father’s word. But he didn’t give any indication that he was ready to totally back off.
Akhilesh Yadav told India TV: “I am ready to return party posts and even portfolios but I must have the power to distribute tickets because the forthcoming poll is after all a test for me and my party.”
