Will start campaign to unite 'samajwadis': Shivpal Yadav
In a new twist to the feud within the Samajwadi Party, its leader Shivpal Singh Yadav on Tuesday said he will soon launch a campaign to unite "samajwadis" (socialists) to bring them on one platform.
Shivpal, the warring uncle of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, had threatened to launch a new party after the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
"We will not let the legacy of 'samajwad' (socialism) to weaken and will soon launch a campaign to unite socialists to bring them on one platform," he said here while felicitating Sayed Sagir Ahmad, a senior socialist leader. "The fight for social justice will be fought with full strength. In the name of Rama, politics of social justice should be done and not of hatred," Shivpal said.
