Apna Dal’s foundation day programme in Allahabad on November 4, which had threatened to push the party a step closer to split, has been cancelled. Party MP Anupriya Patel, apparently unhappy with her mother and party president Krishna Patel’s decision to remove her as general secretary and elevate sister Pallavi Patel to the post of vice-president, had earlier decided to skip the official party programme in Varanasi.

“We concluded that differences are in the family and we as party workers should keep away from aggravating the situation,” said Jawahar Lal Patel, party’s Allahabad district president and considered part of Anupriya Patel faction.
