New Delhi [India], Jan 10 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday castigated the ongoing family feud within the Samajwadi Party (SP) and dubbed the ruling dispensation of Uttar Pradesh as self involved.

BJP leader Sambit Patra said that the prolonged Samajwadi family crisis reflects that the UP government is not bothered about the people of the state.

"The way this fighting is going on in SP it is suggestive of the fact that they are fighting for their image and not for the people," said Patra.

Taking the opportunity to hail the BJP and its agendas ahead of crucial assembly polls Patra added, "BJP condemns this and it thinks that the only agenda with which BJP is going with is development and only development,"

In a move signifying a possible end to the prolonged family feud once and for all, Mulayam Singh, yesterday, asserted that Akhilesh Yadav is the face of the party for the next chief minister of the state, adding that the party stands united.

Speaking to ANI, Mulayam stated that the Samajwadi Party is united and will soon set out to campaign across the state as one.

"For the benefit of the entire state, our party stands united. There is no question of any division whatsoever in the party and we will begin campaigning soon. Akhilesh will be the next chief minister, there is no doubt about that," he said. (ANI)
