Hours after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav removed senior minister Shivpal Yadav and four other ministers from his Cabinet, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan today blamed “one single outsider” for the “unfortunate” developments.

“It is happening due to one single outsider who has penetrated into the ruling party’s family and I have been apprising my colleagues about his detrimental presence in the party. Had a serious and severe action been taken, the damage could have been averted,” he said.

The SP national general secretary termed the stern action taken by chief minister “late but inevitable”.

Known for his controversial remarks in the past, Azam Khan had been maintaining a silence over the recent developments in the party.
