Taking to micro blogging website Twitter, the CM also announced that Gayatri Prajapati, the minister of mines who was sacked by him, will be inducted back in the cabinet.

  • Opposing Shivpal’s step, Akhilesh had cancelled the merger.
  • On August 14, Shivpal had raised the issue of brokerage and created a furore in political circle by saying that he would resign from the party if atrocities against deprived are not stopped.
  • Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav had also held Akhilesh led Uttar Pradesh government responsible for this on Independence Day at party office.
  • Shivpal had diluted the issue, saying ‘all is well within the party and Samajwadi family’.
  • Shivpal had said no one including Akhilesh Yadav could stop the merger of QED-SP merger.
  • Calling Akhilesh inexperienced, Shivpal had said that former is too young and learning politics.
