New Delhi:

Uttar Pardesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is likely to launch a separate party on Sunday. According to sources, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav's son Akhilesh will make the announcement before the party meet on October 24. 

The UP CM has called for a meeting of MLAs and MLCs at his residence at around 10am. If 50 per cent of people agree to the proposal Akhilesh will launch a separate party, sources said. 

Akhilesh Yadav has been in a long tussle with his uncle Shivpal Yadav over party leadership ahead of next assembly elections due in 2017. Mulayam Singh Yadav has so far been unable to resolve the issue despite repeated mitigations.

The matter further escalated on Saturday when Akhilesh's close aide Udayveer Singh was suspended from the party for writing a letter to Mulayam, asking him to step aside and make Akhilesh the party chief.
