Akhilesh Yadav Meets Governor Ram Naik

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav mets the state's governor Ram Naik while internal troubles in the party are still going on. The reason for the meeting is not known yet.

 
Sources said Akhilesh Yadav could discuss with the Governor regarding the sacking of one of his ministers by Samajwadi Party's state chief Shivpal Yadav.
 
Tej Narayan Pandey aka Pawan Pandey, a minister close to Akhilesh Yadav, was expelled on charges of indiscipline and harassment.
 
The minister's sacking today is an evidence that Mulayam Singh Yadav's efforts to create peace between his younger brother and son ahead of crucial elections in Uttar Pradesh have not worked.
 
As the feud in UP's first family has escalated, opposition parties like the BJP and Mayawati's BSP have suggested that Akhilesh Yadav should resign as he has lost control.
 
Akhilesh Yadav, 43, has said he will resign as chief minister if his father and party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav asks him to.
 
He has dismissed speculation that he will launch his own party. He told NDTV yesterday that he will not quit his father's party even if he is removed as Chief Minister.
