Mulayam Singh taken ill; SP convention on Jan 5 postponed
Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party (SP) convention, earlier called on January 5, was postponed after the party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav fell ill amid the internal brawl within the party, said the sources on Monday.
The senior SP leader was treated by the doctors on Sunday evening who advised him to take proper rest, added the sources. He is reportedly suffering from high blood pressure.
Earlier on Sunday, former party general secretary Ramgopal Yadav had called a party convention where three resolutions were approved. As a result, Shivpal Yadav was removed as the state president while Amar Singh was expelled from the party.
Akhilesh Yadav was unanimously elected the new national president of the Samajwadi Party.
Soon after the conclusion of the convention, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, through an order passed by the parliamentary board of the party, declared the National Executive meet unconstitutional and decisions taken there as illegal.
He also sacked Ramgopal Yadav from the party for six years for indiscipline.
