LUCKNOW: Amid open feud in the family, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav rushed here from Delhi this evening and launched efforts to douse the flames by meeting his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav as well as brother Shivpal.

As soon as he reached here, Mulayam summoned Shivpal, who is at loggerheads with Akhilesh, and held closed door meeting with him to defuse the situation.

Shivpal later met Akhilesh at his official residence, sources said, adding the meeting came at the behest of Mulayam. Immediately thereafter, the SP chief met Akhilesh, the sources said.

"Once he (Mulayam) reaches here, all will be well. His word is final," SP national general secretary and Mulayam's another brother Ramgopal Yadav said earlier.

Earlier in the day, Ramgopal had met the Chief Minister and claimed that "Akhilesh is not angry with anyone and the decision of netaji (Mulayam) is final in the party." The same was said by Shivpal at his press conference.
