Shivpal Yadav is using ticket distribution to override Akhilesh in SP?

The announcement of nine new candidates and the replacement of 17 previously named candidates by the Samajwadi Party’s Uttar Pradesh president Shivpal Yadav on Monday is the beginning of the senior leader putting his stamp of authority on the party’s strategy for the coming assembly elections.

It also starts a new phase of differences, however muted right now, between the old guard led by Shivpal and the younger generation led by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav who on Monday said he was not aware of the changes made in the list of candidates by his uncle.
To a question on his role in ticket distribution, Akhilesh said he has “given up all the rights” and “left it to the people”. The responses that he gave in order to avoid a direct answer and his constant reference to “power of the people” could well be perceived as his unhappiness with the party’s functioning.
