UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is reportedly making a move to take Shivpal Yadav and other sacked ministers back into the cabinet. 

A meeting being held between SP patriarch Mulayam Singh and Shivpal Yadav, in order to follow up with Akshilesh's decision of adding the ministers back. It is also being reported that no action will be taken against Amar Singh. 

Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav reacts to rift:

Akhilesh sacked his uncle Shivpal on Sunday along with three more ministers from the state Cabinet. The chief minister reportedly said that whoever was close to Amar Singh could not be part of his government. 

Senior SP leader Amar Singh on Monday denied allegations that he was trying to destroy the party and said Akhilesh Yadav was a fantastic chief minister, but added that the later needed more time to become a mass leader.

He added, "I am not saying he doesn't apeal to the pmasses, but it takes time to become a mass leader. He is still very young. Blending of organisational skill and experience of Mulayam Singh and young face of Akhilesh is crucial for the party."

More details awaited.
