Why UP CM is not finding any rival from Akhilesh Yadav

Even as the Yogi Adityanath government is busy trying to make UP pothole-free, all roads leading to Samajwadi Party still seems to be pockmarked with an outburst from the Yadav family feud. The bitter infighting in SP – that cot the party heavily in the recently – concluded Assembly elections – is still simmering. While Shivpal Yadav is still not done firing outburst against his nephew, Mulayam Singh too seems to be unforgiving and has been blaming the son for the debacle.

Akhilesh, despite having both age and numbers on his side, failed to convert that support into a political victory in an Assembly election fought in alliance with the Congress, much against the wishes of his father. Rahul Gandhi and his Congress failed miserably, although not unexpected. To Akhilesh’s consolation, many blamed the Congress vice-president for the SP’s mighty fall. Whatever may be the truth, it’s high time the two parties to go deep diving and fix the rot.

A constructive opposition is missing even as the Yogi government seems to be on a roller-coaster ride, taking “bold” and “big” decisions. Trying his best to tell the nation that he is still “alive and kicking”, Akhilesh has been conducting stock-taking exercises. A massive membership drive is also on. Akhilesh is also trying hard to project that he is still at the helm of affairs against the father-uncle duo’s repeated attacks.

However, it has now become a common practice within the SP – to dodge discomforting questions. Post-Assembly election debacle, and in the event of enough dirty linen being washed in public, these questions are begging urgent answers. They can’t be rubbished by intimidation. The whole episode raises serious questions over Akhilesh’s capabilities to lead the party from here on.

SP is in complete disarray. Akhilesh Yadav must come out of his comfort zone and answer some uncomfortable questions. He cannot ignore them for long. Can he?
