"After forming the government with the Samajwadi Party in 1993, the BSP had betrayed Mulayam Singh in merely 17 months," Shivpal Yadav said, recalling her association with the BJP in the past.

On Akhilesh Yadav, he said the SP president not only betrayed his father but also the Congress with which he fought the last Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh by going ahead and entering into an alliance with the BSP, leaving the Congress out.

He claimed "backbiters and sycophants have brought the party to a situation where senior leaders are parting ways with it".

He accused SP Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav of damaging the party and blamed him for the SP's defeat in Lok Sabha and Assembly elections.
