United we stand divided we fall came true as far as Samajwadi Pary in Uttar Pradesh is concerned. After Kurukshretra was witnessed in Lucknow, now Netaji is trying hard to put lid on feud and just brushing away turmoil saying we are all united. But as the move to resurect the lost ground, the Akhilesh Singh Yadav, the Chief Minister was staying away, raising the speculation that all is not well with the party cadres. The mind game and the number game have all started. SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav with his brother Shivpal Yadav were at the press conference and Akhilesh was conspicuous by his absence and that is news of both BSP and BJP. The Sangh Parivar was waiting for that timely moment to step into the fray and corner glory. BSP as the next alternative to SP is trying to woo voters with caste politics. The vote bank is open for dramatic turnaround and the Yadavs have paved way for for a new beginning.
