Lucknow: BJP on Wednesday termed as drama the re-election of Mulayam Singh Yadav as SP National President, saying in a party of one family the top post was reserved for lifetime.

BJP state President Laxmi Kant Bajpai in a statement alleged that the SP national convention was being organised by misusing government money in the state, where the Samajwadi Party is in power.

Dubbing Mulayam's re-election as "purely a drama", he alleged that SP was party of one family and the post of its supremo would remain with the head of the family forever.

"What is the relevance of election? Netaji's (Mulayam) dream of moving to Delhi has been shattered and he is frustrated," Bajpai said.

He alleged that SP was holding the convention in the state at a time when the entire state was reeling under power crisis and crime.

Bajpai termed JD(U) President Sharad Yadav's sharing dais with Mulayam as an effect of increasing influence of BJP and said JD(U) has no base in Uttar Pradesh.
