According to the senior leader of Samajwadi Party, Ram Govind Chaudhary, the party has decided to withdraw its petition to disqualify of Shivpal Yadav if the latter decides to come into the folds of Samajwadi Party.

Speaking to the reporters of News18, Ram Chaudhary said, “If Shivpal Singh Yadav dissolves his party and merges it with the Samajwadi Party, then the party will consider withdrawing the application seeking his disqualification as MLA of UP Legislative Assembly“.

Shivpal Yadav was elected from the Jaswantnagar Assembly seat on the ticket of Samajwadi party in 2017. But due to the internal struggle between the Yadav family, the leader left the party and formed a new political outfit named as- Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) on 29 August 2018.

He said that he was not getting due respect in the party. Then, he also contested the Lok Sabha elections of 2019 against his nephew Akshay Yadav (SP candidate) from Firozabad seat.

This angered the top brass of the party and finally, a tussle broke out on September 13 regarding the membership of Shivpal Yadav. The party led by former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav finally moved a petition seeking the former’s disqualification. Responding to this, Shivpal Yadav said that he had already resigned from the SP earlier and the party is free to take on any actions.

Shivpal Yadav had previously erupted a controversy with his comments on Jaswantnagar poll. The leader said that despite the fielding of any candidate from any party, he will continue to fight from his Jaswantnagar seat only.
