Despite the feud between Samajwadi Party state president Shivpal Singh Yadav and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Shivpal addressed the Vikas Rath Yatra in Lucknow on Thursday. Shivpal Singh came out in support of CM Akhilesh and conveyed his best wishes to him to win the upcoming Uttar Pradesh election.
Mulayam Singh Yadav flagged off Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s rath yatra in the presence of state SP chief Shivpal Yadav here. Ending days of suspense on whether he will be present or not, the SP patriarch arrived at La Martinere grounds – the flag off venue – soon after Akhilesh reached there. Shivpal also joined them moments later.
