Samajwadi Party stands exposed and divided: Congress

New Delhi [India], Jan 1 (ANI): The Congress Party on Sunday alleged that the Samajwadi Party stands exposed and divided courtesy the ongoing dispute within the ruling party in Uttar Pradesh.
Congress leader Meem Afzal told ANI that the recent war of words within the Samajwadi Party camp is bringing disrepute to it in the run up to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
"They released an order in the morning and by the evening they came out with another. These recent incidents are bringing a bad name for the Samajwadi Party," he said.
"From now onwards the people of Uttar Pradesh and I also believe that there is no unity within the Samajwadi Party," he added.
The Congress leader's reaction came after Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav expelled party general secretary Ramgopal Yadav from the party for six years while terming the decisions taken in the national executive meet as "unconstitutional and illegal".
"This meet was called without consulting the national secretary of the party and the proposal passed in it is illegal. Stringent action will be taken against the people involved in it," said the letter issue by Mulayam.

Earlier in the day, Ramgopal called on party leaders and workers to declare Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav as the party president.
In a dramatic turn of events, the Samajwadi Party had on Saturday revoked the expulsion of Akhilesh and Ramgopal, a day after they were ousted from the party for six years over anti-party activities. (ANI)
