Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav met with Shivpal Singh Yadav at his residence on Monday amid speculation that the latter would be given major responsibility in the party leadership.
The meeting between the two leaders lasted nearly 45 minutes, according to party sources.
It is speculated that Shivpal Singh Yadav is likely to be given significant responsibility in the party since the way “Yadav Kunba” came together to win the Mainpuri Lok Sabha seat.
The seat was vacant following the death of SP patron and senior leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Shivpal Yadav also accepted the banner of the Samajwadi Party in Etawah and pledged to work to strengthen the party.
The Jaswantnagar MLA formed the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) in 2018 after being sidelined by the Samajwadi Party in 2016.
He fought against Akshay Yadav of Firozabad for the seat won by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
The victory of Akhilesh Yadav’s wife Dimple Yadav from Mainpuri played a big role in “bringing together” uncle-nephew.
