Shivpal has not spoken to me or others in the party (about forming a new party).
Mulayam Singh Yadav said that neither his brother Shivpal Yadav nor senior leader Amar Singh was upset with the chief minister, who recenlty took over as the president of the party after a family feud. "The alliance will win and Akhilesh will be the next Chief Minister", Mulayam said. "We want to save the country from Amit Shah and Prime Minister Modi".
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi addressed rallies at Shamli, Muzaffarnagar and Iglas and said the alliance with SP "mirrors the bright future of UP". However, Mr. Dharmendra Yadav represented the party at the all-party meeting called by the Speaker before the Budget session. "We gave a good number of seats to Congress".
Her "ambitions, overzealousness and political immaturity" are known to have angered Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on many occasions.
On Monday, Mulayam denied any differences in the party despite Shivpal's threat to float a new party after the poll results are declared on March 11.

I always say that at this level you can not play 80 minutes, or 85. "We were unlucky for the first goal which was deflected after a soft free-kick".
"Netaji (read Mulayam Singh Yadav) is still my leader".
"Vote for Samajwadi Party for taking this process to the logical conclusion where every citizen will be covered by the benefits of development and prosperity, " said Akhilesh".
Out of 403 seats, the SP will contest 298 seats, while the Congress has put up candidates in 105 constituencies.
The SP chief's prestige is at stake in Sitapur as he had denied ticket to sitting MLAs Rampal Yadav and Mahendra Singh "Jheen Babu" in the district.
