Point to be noted here is that the party’s constitution was modified to extend the tenure of the party chief to five years from the existing three years.

Now that Akhilesh will remain at the helm for five years, the 2019 Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections in 2022 will be held under his presidentship.

On the other side of the coin, both Mulayam Shivpal gave a miss to the SP event just as they had stayed away from the state executive meeting of the party in Lucknow on September 23.

“I got the benefit of my age and our relation. He (Shivpal) gave me blessings and congratulated me also,” Akhilesh said.

Akhilesh has maintained that he enjoyed the blessings of his 77-year-old father, and Mulayam on his part corroborated it days later saying, “My blessings are with him (Akhilesh Yadav) as he is my son, though I don’t agree with his decisions.”

Baap bete me kab tak matbhed rah sakta hai, koi nahi keh sakta” (No one can say for sure how long differences will remain between father and son),” he had said.
