SP creating family drama to hide their failure in Uttar Pradesh: BJP
New Delhi [India], Sept. 15 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is trying to hide the failures of his government behind ongoing differences between family members.

"We are now seeing the great Uttar Pradesh family drama, what is happening today in Uttar Pradesh is in the name of samajwad we see parivaarvaad. Akhilesh Yadav the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has failed on every count he has failed to maintain law and order in Uttar Pradesh, he has failed to generate employment in Uttar Pradesh that is the reason as to why he is trying to hide behind this family drama," BJP leader Sambit Patra told ANI.

He said that by creating this family drama the Samajwadi Party is trying to confuse the people and distribute Uttar Pradesh within one single family but the people of the state will not let this happen.

Amid the ongoing power tussle in Samajwadi Party, the party's general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav today said there is no 'sankat' (rift) in the party and added that if some differences arise on minor points, those can be resolved.

"There is no crisis in the Samajwadi Party at all, there is no "sankat" or rift". Many a time it happens that some decisions are made and people think that there are problems in the party. Let me be clear, there is nothing like that," he told media here ahead of his meeting with Akhilesh at the latter's residence.

He also said it was a wrong decision to remove Akhilesh Yadav as the president of the Samajwadi Party.

Amid talks of his resignation from the UP cabinet, Shivpal said on Wednesday he will abide by whatever decision Mulayam Singh Yadav makes about him, because the state's people "are with their leader Mulayam."

Chief Minister Akhilesh, too, denied a family rift on Wednesday. "Where have you found a family fight? This is a fight in government, not a family fight ," Akhilesh told the media.

"If people from outside the family keep interfering, how will things (government) work?" (ANI)
