Rare sight: Mulayam, Akhilesh, Shivpal celebrate Diwali together

New Delhi, Oct 19: Mulayam Singh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav celebrate Diwali together in Etawah. This is a very significant development as the Yadav clan has been in news, of late, for all wrong reasons.

The differences between uncle Shivpal Yadav an nephew Akhilesh Yadav is in open. Time and again, what confuses the avid political analysts is the now-hot-now-cold relationship between the father-son duo. Samajwadi Party veteran Shivpal Yadav has been very inconsistent in his filial love. At times it seems that all's well between the father-son duo, and other times they seems to be at dagger's drawn. But the coming together of the prominent members of the Yadav clan is very important. Or is it a realization at last? Finally a sense has dawned within the Yadav clan that the internal bickering and differences are only weakening the party, and this was evident during the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
