Days after the humiliating defeat in the state assembly elections, senior Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav met Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath at his residence in Lucknow on Tuesday.
Interestingly, the meeting comes days after party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav's daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav met the UP chief minister.
Shivpal, who is also MLA from the party's bastion of Jaswantnagar, held a "courtesy meeting" with Adityanath for nearly 15 minutes at 5 Kalidas Marg.

Earlier on March 24, Aparna Yadav had met the UP chief minister. On March 31, Adityanath had visited a cow shelter run by Aparna Yadav. The SP got only 47 seats in the 403-member UP assembly.
Shivpal, the warring uncle of party chief Akhilesh Yadav, had threatened to form a new party after the polls. However, he had recently said any decision on forming a new party was yet to be taken. "I am with Netaji (Mulayam) and would stay with him," he had said.
