Mulayam takes reins back from Akhilesh as another dynasty fails

Patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav is trying to rejuvenate the Samajwadi Party, reaching out to the senior leaders marginalised by Akhilesh, and practically making the party office his home

Lucknow: Following the drubbing of the Samajwadi Party (SP) at the Lok Sabha election, patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav has now taken over the command of the party to rejuvenate his organisation. Yadav, along with senior party leaders, is now continuously taking feedback on this defeat.

The Yadavs have also made a strategy for the road ahead. However, SP leaders are avoiding saying anything on this. What is known for sure is that Mulayam’s role will be to strengthen the party?

The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister can now be seen in action once again, with his son Akhilesh Yadav marginalised to a certain extent. For the past few days, Mulayam is visiting the party office on a daily basis. Here, he meets with the party workers and leaders and talks to them. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Mulayam has now made the party office his home.

Party sources say that in the last few days, Mulayam Singh Yadav prioritised meeting such leaders who had been sidelined in the party under the reign of Akhilesh. A source in the party said, “I met him recently. Netaji was worried about the present situation of the party. After our defeat in the Lok Sabha elections, he is concerned also about the future of the party. I think that he must have conveyed this to Akhilesh after taking feedback from the old leaders.”

Mulayam to make Shivpal return

Another SP leader said, “Both father and son (Mulayam and Akhilesh) have met with party leaders in Lucknow. Netaji is first trying to unite the family. He is a veteran leader and will benefit the party.”

SP sources said further that Shivpal Yadav, who was separated from the party after serious differences with his nephew Akhilesh, recently met Netaji. “Although I cannot say what has happened between them, Netaji is surely bringing Shivpal back in the party.”

Akhilesh to travel across the State

Another SP leader said, “Akhilesh Yadav is busy in reorganising the party, too. An Eid meeting has been organised by the SP this Sunday.” It is believed that all the party leaders will gather and the strategy ahead will be decided during this time.

Party sources said that it is likely that Akhilesh Yadav will undertake a yatra all over Uttar Pradesh to interact with the people directly.

Like Sonia-Rahul in Congress

Recently after the Congress Working Committee meeting, it was decided that UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi will be back as the head of the Congress Parliamentary Party. Simultaneously, Congress president Rahul Gandhi decided to step down, a decision most leaders of the party do not agree with. However, neither a replacement of Rahul has been found nor has he changed his decision to quit as the party president, ignoring the pleas of his colleagues.

Unlike in the SP, the seniors in the Congress have been held responsible for the poll debacle. Rahul Gandhi, of all people, told them as much at the CWC. Like the SP, on the other hand, the dynasty of the Congress has lost its public appeal.
