Lucknow: The Election Commission will hold a meeting with leaders of two factions of the Smajwadi Party (SP) on Friday to discuss the party symbol issue with them. Both the warring groups have put up claims on the cycle symbol being used by the party for last 25 years.

While party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav has himself gone to Delhi to plead the case, the other faction led by his son and chief minister Ahilesh Yadav will be represented by his cousin Ram Gopal Yadav.

According to party insiders, if the Commission does not allot cycle symbol to either faction and decides to freeze it, the Akhilesh faction may go for motorcycle symbol which is an up gradation from the common man's cycle and the Mulayam group may opt for farmer ploughing a field, the symbol used by the Lok Dal.

Both the groups have already submitted documents and papers to support their claims.
