EC most likely to freeze Samajwadi Party's symbol 'Cycle'
When Shivpal Singh Yadav had said that Akhilesh Yadav will form his own party and fight elections by joining hands with Congress, no one including the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav was serious enough to give his words a thought.
Sources close to the party said that Ram Gopal Yadav, since then, was busy gathering the documents to stake claim over the party and the symbol.
Shivpal, however, failed to smell the complete plan of Ram Gopal, who included the active party members in conspiring against Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Ram Gopal, however, had no clue that party's constitution only gives right to the party president to take decesions.
The faction led by Akhilesh Yadav had also submitted the documents to EC related to the executive meeting called by Ram Gopal Yadav on January 2nd that was, however, termed unconstitutional by SP Chief.
Meanwhile, according to the guidelines of EC, no side can hold claim on party and symbol by presenting signed affidavits of MPs, legislators and office bearers.
The factions led by Mulayam and Akhilesh had failed to present much evidences to claim the stake of party's name and symbol and in such case, the only choice left with EC is to freeze the party symbol.
If this happens, Mulayam and Akhilesh both will have to contest elections on new symbols and parties.
