LUCKNOW: Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia) President Shivpal Yadav said on Sunday there would be no uncle-nephew in the coming elections, but will be opponent.
The latest remake from Shivpal comes after his nephew and senior Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav’s son Akshay Yadav targeted his uncle Shivpal.
Addressing a gathering here on Sunday, Akshay, who is an MP in Firozabad constituency took a jibe at his uncle saying that he has come to Ferozabad to work as BJP’s agent to “spread garbage” in the cleanliness that he (Akshay) has established.
At ‘Hain Taiyyar Hum’ rally in Firozabad, Shivpal said that those who have always benefited from the SP have shown him the way out. Now they are accusing him of being BJP’s ‘B-Team’.

I only have to see how the country and state can progress,” he added. He added that he wants to remove the BJP government from power and is ready for a coalition with “like-minded secular parties,” Shivpal said.
