LUCKNOW: Samajwadi Party (SP) president Mulayam Singh Yadav Monday refused to say who would head the next Uttar Pradesh government, but his son Akhilesh was categorical - his father would.

"I won't say anything till election results are out," Mulayam told reporters in Lucknow a day before election results in the politically crucial state are to be declared.

Akhilesh, who heads the SP in the state, said: "All the party members want that Mulayamji should become chief minister."

Expressing hope that the party would win majority and form a government on its own, Akhilesh said: "We have worked hard in Uttar Pradesh and it is the result of our hard work which you see."
