LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday acknowledged that he had felt "bad" over his removal as state party president and said he would abide by every decision of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

"I felt bad and you saw its effect," Akhilesh Yadav said to a question on his removal as the party's state unit chief.

Akhilesh Yadav was speaking at India TV's Chunav Manch conclave in Lucknow.

After being replaced by uncle Shivpal Singh Yadav as state party chief, Akhilesh in turn divested Shivpal of plum portfolios in the state cabinet.

Akhilesh said he will accept every decision of his father, Mulayam Singh Yadav, and clearly hinted that Gayatri Prajapati, who was sacked as minister by him earlier this week, would be reinstated in the ministry.

"It is my responsibility as a son to accept Netaji's decision. I accept Netaji's decision to bring Gayatri Prajapati back into cabinet," he said.

The Chief Minister also said there is no fight within the family.

"It is election time. We should all come together and work. There is no fight between Ramgopal Yadav, Akhilesh and Shivpal," he said.
