Talking to reporters in Ghaziabad, en route to Saharanpur, he said,"I never wanted to become chief minister. Had I wanted,I could have been in 2003 but I supported Mulayam Singh Yadav and he became the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh."

Shivpal said that he may or may not be the SP state president but will always remain a "disciplined soldier of Netaji (Mulayam)".

He said SP will form a 'Maha Gathbandhan', as was in Bihar polls, with secular parties to check BJP from wresting power in Uttar Pradesh.
