SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Friday expelled his son and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav as well as general secretary Ramgopal Yadav from the party for six years for “gross indiscipline”, a decision that will lead to a political crisis in the state.
Mulayam, made the announcement at a press conference in Lucknow. He also said that the new Chief Minister will be chosen by the Samajwadi Party and that he had taken the action against Akhilesh and Ramgopal to save the party
which he had built through hard efforts.
Here’s how Twitterati reacted to expulsion of the leaders:
With Akhilesh & Ram Gopal Yadav out of the Samajwadi Party save this tweet its an alliance and a sweep….save it!

Now that Mulayam and Akhilesh are on different pages;
One thing is certain, Uttar Pradesh is no longer Puttar Pradesh.
