Shivpal repeats resignation threat even after Mulayam’s support
Etawah: Even after he was backed by his elder brother and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, senior party leader Shivpal Singh Yadav on Monday threatened to resign from the party once again during an Independence Day function at Heonra Degree College in Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah district.
“I will complain about illegal mining as well as other illicit activities in Uttar Pradesh to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Netaji (Mulayam). If stern action is not taken against people involved, I will definitely resign from all my posts in the party. I will prefer serving the people of my state as an ordinary social worker when I fail to provide them with justice as a minister,” said Shivpal during his speech at the function.
He, however, diluted his stand soon after he was informed that the party chief had snubbed the CM over the matter. "We all are one and concealed to our own duties. Moreover, Netaji's wish has always been a command to me," said the minister in a Tweet.
हम सब एक हैं और अपने कर्तव्य के प्रति प्रतिबद्ध हैं। नेताजी का संकेत ही मेरे लिए आदेश है।

It may be recalled that the minister had threatened to resign from the Samajwadi Party. He on Sunday last had said the SP ministers as well as the officers were playing mischief with the party and hampering the governance. “I cannot remain a minister in such situation where the officers ignore my orders,” added Shivpal.
