In a jolt to former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, his father and Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday removed his cousin Prof Ram Gopal Yadav as secretary of Lohia Trust and replaced him with his trusted brother Shivpal Singh Yadav.

The decision came even as Akhilesh, Azam Khan, Dharmendra Yadav and Prof Ram Gopal Yadav stayed away from the crucial meeting of the Lohia Trust for the second consecutive time. Mulayam continues to be the chairman of the 13-member Lohia Trust even after his son staged a coup against him on January 1.

Earlier, Mulayam had sacked four Akhilesh loyalists Ahmed Hasan, Ram Govind Chowdhury, Anil Shakya and Usha Vishwakarma during its last meeting in August. Though Ram Gopal Yadav is removed from the post of secretary, he continues to be a member of the Trust.

Lohia Trust is an important wing of the Samajwadi Party. The trust not only looks after all offices of the party but also works to promulgate socialist ideology of Dr Ram Manohar Lohia across the country.

"I have been entrusted with the new responsibility. Netaji will hold a news conference on September 25 to spell out future course of strategy," said Shivpal Singh Yadav.

When asked, Shivpal said he was not invited to the state convention in Lucknow on September 23 and national convention on October 5 in Agra by his nephew Akhilesh Yadav despite him being a legislator of the party.

Removal of Ram Gopal Yadav has further widened the gulf between the two warring factions and intensified the family feud within the Yadav clan. It now remains to be seen how Akhilesh will react to his father's move.
