New Delhi:

Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Friday calls for meeting of candidates declared for UP Assembly elections on 31st December at party office in Lucknow.

Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav called Samajwadi Party's core-group meeting at 10.30am at his residence on Kalidas Marg. Both youth and senior leaders were expected to be present at the meeting.

On Monday night, Samajwadi Party Uttar Pradesh chief Shivpal Singh Yadav issued the complete list of candidates for the upcoming UP state elections.

The list came out at around midnight as an emergency measure after current UP CM and his nephew Akhilesh Yadav issued a parallel list of candidates, including his loyal supporters who were dropped from the original list.

In an act of defiance to his family, Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday released the list of 235 candidates out of 403 seats for the upcoming state assembly elections.

The 235 candidates include 171 current MLAs in Akhilesh Government along with some new names.  The candidates for the rest of the seats will be announced soon, a party notification said.

The list will be construed as an act war against his uncle Shivpal Yadav and father Mulayam Singh Yadav, as Samajwadi Party supremo has already issued a list of candidates for 325 candidates earlier on Wednesday.
