So, yesterday was a day of intense drama, revenge sackings, letter wars and war of words in the ongoing family feud in Uttar Pradesh’s first family to wrest the power. And today could be even more fiery, even more spiteful, even more dramatic, even more shocking, depending on which way Mulayam decides to go, and in turn, depending on that, which way Akhilesh would go.
Let’s do some wise (wild guessing).
This morning when Mulayam Singh Yadav will speak on the controversy after meeting his party’s MLAs and MLCs, it will have the hangover of the meeting of the day and of the developments yesterday we can say.
Will Mulayam speak his mind irrespective of which way the meetings goes, with Akhilesh’s power display or Shivpal’s show of loyalty?
Or his final word will become final after he assesses the mood in his party – that who carries more weight now – Akhilesh or Shivpal?
Whatever happens, one things is sure that it will write the next chapter in the script of the Samajwadi Party family feud.
Harm has to happen. Votes will split. Irrespective of which way Mulayam decides to go. What he can hope at best – that the repercussions will not last long.
And one thing – Mulayam is not going to replace Akhilesh with himself as UP’s next CM.
