Lucknow: Preeti Mahapatra’s decision not to withdraw from the Rajya Sabha contest has caused an additional worry to the Samajwadi Party. The meeting of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav with Raghu Raj Pratap Singh on Monday is being seen in this context in the political circles.

The meeting is also significant because it has taken place after a long gap . The relationship between him and SP leaders had soured following his resignation from the SP government.

He quit in the wake of charge of his involvement in murder of a deputy superintendent of police. He was taken back after a clean chit was given by the court but there was a change in relationship. The meeting was aimed at making amends.

The father-son duo, however, has called the meeting at his residence a private affair.
