A lawmaker, who is believed to be close to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has asked Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav to step down and let his son take his place.
Udayveer Singh, a Member of Legislative Council, wrote a 'private letter' to Mulayam Singh Yadav in which he alleged CM’s step mother for doing some kind of black magic on him.
As reported by IANS, Singh said that he was merely airing his personal feelings that too through private letter which came in media. He only wanted to echo his views regarding most of the party colleagues.
Singh also accused Mulayam Singh Yadav's second wife Sadhna of having ill feeling towards Akhilesh and Shivpal Singh Yadav, state party chief and brother of Mulayam Singh, is also jealous of CM's popularity.
Accusing Sadhna and Shivpal Yadav of collusion, Udayveer Singh alleged that the Chief Minister was being subject to black magic with a view to harm him.
Demanding that the party revoke the expulsion of young party leaders, he said Akhilesh Yadav was the most credible face of the Samajwadi Party.
Reacting to the letter, party leader Ashu Malik said people writing such letters were not even worth 500 votes. He added that the party would not tolerate indiscipline or the attempt to humiliate Netaji (Mulayam Singh).
