Lucknow: In a clear defiance of the party leadership, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday released another list of 235 candidates for the UP assembly elections 2017.
His list came after a day when Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav had released an official list of 325 candidates.
This was despite the day long meeting of UP CM with Mulayam Singh and state party president Shivpal and other senior leaders of the party.
Earlier, Akhilesh had expressed his reservation over the party’s list which did not have many names of his loyalists. Akhilesh had assured to speak to Mulayam and adjust them but it did not seemed to come through.
In a late night development, Akhilesh released another list which contains names of his loyalists.
