EC Awards Cycle Symbol To Akhilesh Yadav And This Makes Him All-Powerful In SP

Updated on 20 January, 2017 at 6:56 pm By

The Election Commission, late on Monday, gave its verdict on the election symbol row of the Samajwadi Party. The verdict: Akhilesh Yadav gets the right to use the party symbol.

Within moments after the verdict, jubilation swept the supporters of the son of Mulayam Singh Yadav. They were seen celebrating the much-awaited verdict, which further strengthens the hold of Akhilesh Yadav over the party.

 


The EC recognised the faction of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister as Samajwadi Party and therefore the one entitled to use the ‘bicycle’ symbol.

The three-member EC also acknowledged Akhilesh Yadav as the national president of the party.

 


What is worth noting is that the EC gave the right of using cycle to Akhilesh based on the numbers that supported him. And this is by far the biggest proof that most of the Samajwadi Party stands with the young CM.

 



It is obvious that the decision did not go down well with party founder and Akhilesh’s father Mulayam Singh Yadav, who had, in a dramatic move, previously expelled both Akhilesh and his own cousin Ramgopal Yadav from the party.

They were later re-inducted.

 


The next step, as Ramgopal Yadav said after the verdict, will be a keen focus on the upcoming elections with an eye on a ‘mahagathbandhan’ – an alliance with Congress and RLD.

 

This victory is significant for Akhilesh, who now gets the bragging rights in the ruling party in India’s most populous state. In fact, Akhilesh Yadav can now not only flex his muscles within the party but also call the shots in any alliance. Reports of Congress CM candidate Sheila Dikshit willing to make way for Akhilesh in case of an alliance is already doing the rounds.

Following the decision, Akhilesh went to Mulayam to seek his blessings. Meanwhile, Mulayam might approach the court against the EC verdict or go for a new symbol.
