The Yadav family-feud today witnessed a major twist of plot when senior Samajwdi Party leader and uncle of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Shivpal Yadav threatened to float a new party post election results.

According to the reports, Yadav was also quoted saying that his new party would give space to all the leaders sacked by the current CM. "I will form a new party after March 11 when results (of UP Assembly elections) are out," he told his supporters in Etawah. His announcement came just after he filed his candidacy from Jaswantnagar seat for the upcoming UP assembly elections.

He told a public meeting that he "has been obliged (by Akhilesh Yadav) by getting party ticket...Or else I would have contested as an Independent."

"You make the government, we will make a new party," Shivpal, the warring uncle of Akhilesh said.

Minutes after the announcement, Akhilesh Yadav said in Etah, around 100 km from here, that those working against the party's interest will not spared, indicating that the internal feud in the ruling Samajwadi Party is far from over.

"I will remain solidly behind Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) till my last breath and his humiliation will not be tolerated at any cost," Shivpal said.

"I had told the chief minister that everything is acceptable but not Netaji's humiliation," he said.

Shivpal has been marginalised in the new arrangement in the party after his nephew Akhilesh took over the reins from Mulayam.

Besides, he has been completely ignored in campaigning also with his name not figuring in the list of SP's star campaigners.
