Samajwadi Party's UP unit chief, Shivpal Singh Yadav has expelled a minister from the party for six years, who is a close aide of chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. The minister Tej Narain Pandey alias Pawan Pandey had allegedly slapped party MLC Ashu Malik at the residence of Akhilesh Yadav.
In a bid to resolve the internal feud within the Samajwadi Party, seasoned politician Mulayam Singh Yadav had called a meeting of party MPs, ministers and MLCs at the party headquarter in Lucknow. However, the meeting ended abruptly without any solution, if various media reports are to be believed.
The Union Cabinet meeting is scheduled for tomorrow and it is expected that it may approve the report of a high-powered panel that was formed to process the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. The central government has constituted the Cabinet Secretary PK Sinha-led panel in January this year.
If one believes the various reports based on what sources have to say regarding BJP's CM face in upcoming UP State assembly polls, it is none other than Rajnath Singh, the Union Home Minister. When Singh was asked to comment over these speculative reports, he called the question hypothetical.
