I have not formed any party yet: Shivpal

Etawah (UP)
13 Feb 2017

Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav today said he has not formed any party yet but will strengthen the organisation after March 11, when the results of Uttar Pradesh polls are out. "I have not formed any party yet. I will strengthen the party organisation after March 11 and discuss with senior party leaders," Yadav told reporters here. Shivpal, who is also SP candidate from Jaswant Nagar seat here, however said he would ensure honour of neglected party workers but did not elaborate. He had announced on January 31 that he will float a new party after March 11, drawing sharp retort from Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. "I will form a new party after March 11 when results (of UP Assembly elections) are out," he had told his supporters here. "You make the government, we will make a new party," Shivpal, the warring uncle of Akhilesh, had said. Minutes after the announcement, the chief minister had said those working against the party's interest will not be spared.(PTI)
