I'll support uncle Shivpal, no rift in SP, says Akhilesh

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said he would support his uncle and Samajwadi Party state President Shivpal Yadav, and there was "no rift" in the party.

He said all Samajawadi workers needed to work together "so that opponents don't get a chance to raise fingers at us".

He said the Samwajwadi Party was "united and there is no rift".

Akhilesh said, “Maine kabhi bhi Politics ko ek game nahin samjha hai, its not a game. I have congratulated him (Shivpal Yadav) on being made UP chief of Samajwadi Party. Hum sabko mil kar kaam karne ki zaroorat hai taakki virodhiyon ko mauka na miley. Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) ka aadesh sarvamanniya hai. Politics is not a game, it is a serious business. We are united, there is no rift in Samajwadi party."
