Yadav clan drama: Akhilesh-Shivpal stand-off is over privileges, not principles

The reason for the ongoing feud in the ruling family in Uttar Pradesh could, after all, be the authority to select party candidates for the 2017 Assembly election. This seemingly innocuous power is actually so strong that Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is prepared to reinstate the two ministers dismissed a few days ago, restore departments to uncle and senior minister Shivpal Yadav and, if it comes to the crunch, even quit from the chief ministerial post.

Akhilesh Yadav admitted all this rather candidly while participating in a television programme in Lucknow on Friday – the fifth day of the stand-off between him and his uncle Shivpal Yadav. In response to a question whether Shivpal could be given back the departments taken away from him, Akhilesh replied that in this case he, too, would like to get back what he had lost. And he went on to add that he would like to retain the authority to give party tickets for the forthcoming election and was even ready to lay down his office to get this authority.

SP drama: Akhilesh Yadav is a man of his own, daddy Mulayam should stop hand-holding

Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav is no Dhritarashtra. The latest turn of events in Uttar Pradesh suggest that he appears to be more beholden to his brother and interests of some others in the family than blind in affection for his son, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

By doing so, the erstwhile pehalwan wants the world and his son to know that he is the ultimate ‘Bahubali’ of UP politics. No one defies him, not even his otherwise beloved son.

But then Akhilesh too is no Duryodhana. He is no Yudhishtir either. He is a pragmatic young politician, entrusted with the task of ruling the Hindu heartland of UP and is the one who is reading the popular mood right – that you cannot be a winner in your own right if you don’t choose the development path, look sincere in providing a government that cares for delivery of popular goods and also at times be ruthless in action, not in public demeanour, but when it looks like his authority is being challenged by a coterie of corrupt status quoists.
