Election Commission gives SP’s Cycle to Akhilesh, rejects Mulayam’s claims


688777181-630657216_6Election Commission on January 16 changed the political environment of Uttar Pradesh by allotting Samajwadi Party’s ‘cycle’ symbol to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

As the Election Commission rejected the claims of party patriarch Mulayam Singh, the chances of Akhilesh Yadav coming forth as the front-runner in UP Polls have lightened up.

Now, Mulayam Singh Yadav seems to have no option but to seek another symbol. He may also have the choice to opt for the already existing Lok Dal symbol.

While the supporters immediately started celebrations at Akhilesh Yadav’s residence, the Chief Minister is going to start tour of Uttar Pradesh from January 19.

The alliance comprising Congress and other parties, as anticipated, is also likely to happen in few days.

Despite the family dispute, Akhilesh Yadav continued to express that his father’s words were final for him. The big jolt to Mulayam Singh Yadav came on January 1 when Akhilesh Yadav was named Samajwadi Party’s national head .

After going through family and political turmoil, Akhilesh Yadav has emerged as more confident and victorious once again. Now, by getting reigns of the party as well as the symbol, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has the final authority to talk on the alliance terms with the Congress, Janata Dal (United), Rashtriya Lok Dal, and others to set out on a joint campaign with alliance party leaders.
