Lucknow: At the Samajwadi Party meeting here, Samajwadi Party leader Shivpal Yadav and UP CM Akhilesh Yadav traded charges at each other on dais.
When Shivpal said he had been working for the organisation all these four years visiting each district three to four times, someone in the audience pointed out that he had travelled using government helicopter.
Shivpal retorted: "Helicopter kya tumhare baap ka hai, main mantri tha government mein (Did your father own the helicopter? I was a minister in the government)."
Amid the commotion, Shivpal snatched the mike from the chief minister.
Snubbing Akhilesh's supporters, Shivpal said the party has been strengthened through the hard work and sweat of Mulayam Singh and not "because of your sloganeering".
