UP Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya wished Mulayam Singh a speedy recovery. He said that information has been received about the deteriorating health of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav. I pray and pray to God for his speedy recovery. Akhilesh is now headed to Delhi, a party spokesperson said on Sunday, giving an update.

Meanwhile, Mulayam Singh Yadav’s son, Akhilesh, was re-elected as the party chief for the third time at a two-day national convention earlier this week. “It is not just a post, but a great responsibility. I assure you that for the responsibility that you have given me, even if I have to devote every day of life and every moment to work and struggle, I will,” Akhilesh had said at the event. He further stressed that his father always wanted it to become a national party. “We struggled for it and tried a lot. On this day, when you are giving me another term of five years, we should all take a pledge that the next time we meet the SP becomes a national party,” he said at the party’s national convention.

A party has to fulfill any of the three criteria to be declared a national party: winning two per cent of seats in the Lok Sabha (11 seats) from at least three different states in the latest polls, winning six per cent of the total valid votes in at least four states in an election to LS or a legislative assembly, in addition to winning four Lok Sabha seats; or being recognized as a state party in at least four states. The party said Yadav was elected unopposed following the due process.
