Udayveer Singh, a Samajwadi Party MLC and one of the closest aides of Akhilesh Yadav, was today expelled from the party for “undignified” conduct days after he wrote to SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav suggesting him to elevate the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister as the party’s national president.

A decision to expel Singh was taken after the inaugural meeting of the executive committee of SP’s Uttar Pradesh unit adopted a resolution seeking action against him for his “derogatory” comments against Mulayam. “Udayveer Singh has been expelled from the party for six years for his undignified and indisciplined behaviour,” state party spokesman Ambika Chaudhary said.

“The party will not tolerate undignified behaviour and indiscipline. It has reached where it is in 25 years because of discipline,” Chaudhary said. In the four-page letter to the party supremo earlier this week, Singh had said, “SP state president Shivpal Yadav and other members of his family have misled you (Mulayam) and hatched a conspiracy against CM Akhilesh, who should be made party national president and given all the powers.”

Singh, whose association with Akhilesh is over three decades hold, with both studying in school together, had reportedly also made some comments about Mulayam’s second wife and Chief Minister’s step mother, which angered the SP’s first family.

Reacting to the development, Singh said he had only put before Mulayam his thoughts about the “conspiracy” against the Chief Minister. Asked to comment on his expulsion, he said, “I will give my version only after getting the letter.”

Maintaining that he had no regrets about the points raised by him in the letter, Singh said,”Netaji is the patron of the party. I am confident that he will do justice to me and the chief minister.” “Those who used foul language against the party chief are still in the party, but those who are the real well wishers and wrote letters are being expelled,” Singh said.

Gaurav Bhatia, SP spokesman, said Singh had crossed the “Lakshman Rekha” in choosing the words he wrote in his letter to Mulayam which also hurt party workers. “Questioning the leadership of Mulayam Singh Yadav, who is an elected president of the party, was wrong. An MLC cannot dictate who the party president will be. Anybody committing an act of indiscipline has to be punished and this is what has happened,” he said.

      It seeems all these family / dynasty oriented political parties suffer the same fate as that of congress. For them the Leader is the party and the party is for the leader and to the family alone. How can these parties do any good to the country? Take the DMK for Mr MK everything is his son stalin and his daughter madam Kani and similarly the TRS , JDU,RJD and the list is endless. Thebiggest culprit is the congress party. Jai Hind.

        Mullah Yadav Royal Court have lot of royal conspiracy between Shejeda Young Mullah and father about power. Mullah promised to his second wife to hand over power to her at the first proposal. Dissatisfied with the promise, she fired tantric mantra to young Shejada. Subidhawadi Party root is poisoned by the poison of family struggle. Let them fall down to see the dawn of civilization of UP where the smell of lotus spread of peace and tranquility.

                UP had many political stalwarts who served the nation with great distinction in the early decades of independence. But it has fallen a long way, and to expect dignity from its present crop of politicians is like expecting honor among thieves!

                  How about Modi Ji? He abandoned his wife right after the wedding and hid it ever since till it became public very recently. He did not pay for it as it did not very much affected his credibility. What a tragedy! Questionable standards. I feel strongly same standard should be applied to the Prime Ministers perfidious behavior as other. This election must pose this question to him as to why must he not be held accountable and discredited.
