Lucknow, Dec 30 (IBNS): The rift within the Samajwadi Party became wider before the Uttar Pradesh Assmebly polls as party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Friday expelled his son and state Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his cousin Ram Gopal Yadav from the party for six years.

Mulayam Singh Yadav dropped the bomb during a press conference here where he said: "We have expelled both of them for a period of six years."

"Ram Gopal Yadav has been suspended from the party for six years for indiscipline," Mulayam Singh Yadav said.

He said Ram Gopal Yadav has weakened the party from within.

Mulayam Singh Yadav said the move was taken to save the party.

"We need to save the party," the SP chief said.

Reacting to the development, Ram Gopal Yadav said the move made by the SP chief was 'unconstitutional'.

"This is completely unconstitutional," Ram Gopal Yadav told media.

Meanwhile, Akhilesh Yadav supporters have gathered outside his residence here to show their support to the expelled leader.

Troubles grew within the Samajwadi Party as party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav issued a  show-cause notice to Akhilesh Yadav, media reports said.

According to reports, the notice asked why disciplinary action should not be taken against the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.

Mulayam Singh Yadav had earlier published the list of 325 party candidates for the UP assembly elections.

According to reports, it left out 53 current lawmakers of the Samajwadi Party, including close aides of the Chief Minister.

Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday named parallel list of 235 candidates for the UP Assembly polls.

Uttar Pradesh is all set to elect a new assembly next year.
