Mamata congratulates Akhilesh Yadav on becoming national president of Samajwadi Party

Akhilesh Yadav

Both the 2019 Lok Sabha and the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2022 will be held under the presidentship of 44-year-old Akhilesh.

As he was addressing a press conference a day ahead of the party's national convention, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister was asked about reports that his uncle had called him up.

However, the Election Commission recognised Akhilesh Yadav as the leader of the party allocating the Samajwadi Party election symbol "cycle" to him even as Mulayam Singh protested. Party's convention begun yesterday at Agra.

Along with re-electing Akhilesh, the party is also expected to pass an amendment to its constitution, which would increase the terms of office-bearers from three to five years.

On this occasion, Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee congratulated Akhilesh Yadav for being nominated the president of Samajwadi Party.




The re-election of Akhilesh Yadav means he will lead the party into the next Lok Sabha and state assembly elections. The task of competing with and stopping the BJP can only be done by Samajwadi people. "Business has come to a standstill, inflation is rising and traders are in a state of mental shock", he said.

Akhilesh Yadav has already expressed his willingness to join hands with an anti-BJP alliance for 2019 and attended the "BJP hatao, desh bachao" opposition rally organized by Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad in Patna in August.

Akhilesh's wife and MP, Dimple Yadav, was present at the convention. After feud in the Yadav family, Akhilesh Yadav and his uncle Ram Gopal Yadav joined hands and Shivpal Yadav, Mulayam were sidelined. "He (Shivpal) gave me blessings and congratulated me also", he said.

Earlier this month, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav did not turn up for the 8th state convention of the party which they formed 25 years back.
