A CM shouldn't be arrogant, Akhilesh needs more experience: Shivpal

Among the major decisions taken by the cabinet, Akhilesh said, pension of expert artisans will be raised to Rs 2,000 from Rs 1,000.

The chief minister, who is known to take questions from the media, however, made an early exit.

September 19: After being reinstated as the Uttar Pradesh state president of the Samajwadi Party (SP), Shivpal Singh Yadav on Monday continued to flex his political muscles as he suspended six party leaders and three MLCs for a period of six years.

"Akhilesh Yadav had also said that "outsiders" were interfering in the affairs of the family and the party".

He further said the Chief Minister should have at least put his attention toward the development of the state.

The ongoing "clean-up" by Shivpal is being seen in the light of the fact that over the years, Akhilesh has been trying to break down old hierarchies represented by Mulayam, Shivpal and Amar Singh, whose re-entry was recently facilitated by the Mulayam-Shivpal duo. Akhilesh in response had withdrawn crucial portfolios from Shivpal leaving only social welfare in his hands.

The seven leaders are Sunil Singh Yadav, Vidhan Parishad member-MLC and youth leader, Anand Bhadauria - Vidhan Parisad member-MLC and youth leader, Md Ebad - state president of Youth Brigade, Brijesh Yadav - state president Samajwadi Yuvjan Sabha, Sanjay Lathar - Vidhan Parishad member-MLC and youth leader, Gaurav Dubey - national president of Youth brigade and Digvijay Singh Deo - state president of Chatra Sabha.

Some district party chiefs could be replaced after the meeting of district party presidents convened by Shivpal on Tuesday, they said.

With Shivpal Yadav getting back all his previous and powerful ministries - barring PWD - and also retaining the post of the state unit chief, sources say, the impression is that he is more powerful than his Chief Minister nephew - and this will only create problems in the future.

Speaking to ANI here, BJP leader Sudesh Verma said every adult linked to SP chief Mulayam Yadav is occupying one post or another, be it that of a minister or chairman.

Samajwadi Party big wigs are strongly opposed to Amar Singh, often described as an "outsider". Akhilesh too should learn from him and me as well.
