Shivpal gets back his ministries, says Akhilesh should learn from me

Lucknow:  Following the diktat from Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav restored the portfolios  of Shivpal  Yadav. Akhilesh had earlier taken PWD, Irrigation and revenue portfolios from Shivpal Yadav. Meanwhile, Amar Singh has blamed media for maligning his image.  Earlier in the day, speaking at a private event Shivpal had said that Akhilesh can learn many things from him.  He said, " When a person sits on a powerful  chair,  his nature changes".  Replying to a question  whether Akhilesh will listen to Mulayam, Shivpal said, " Nobody in the party can defy netaji (Mulayam)".  He also said, " Akhilesh will be party's CM candidate for 2017 assembly polls".  Shivpal added that he will follow netaji's orders, and will work closely with the veteran leader for the assembly polls.   On the other hand, Amar Singh said, " I bring people together, I don't break families".  Amar Singh is being seen as the chief architect of the Akhilesh-Shivpal  feud.
