Samajwadi Party (SP) MLA Hariom Yadav, who represents Sirsaganj in Firozabad district, was expelled from the party for six years for allegedly indulging in ‘anti-party’ activities. Hariom Yadav is considered to be close to Shivpal Singh Yadav, who had split from the SP and formed his Progressive Samajwadi Party (Lohia).
n being expelled, Yadav attacked SP National General Secretary Ram Gopal Yadav and alleged that he got him expelled from the party. “I opposed Professor Ram Gopal and his wrongdoings. I also opposed his liquor mafia nephew, so I was shown a way out of the party,” he alleged.
Taking a dig at the Samajwadi Party President, Yadav said, “SP is no longer in the possession of Akhilesh Yadav. Now, the Samajwadi party belongs to Ram Gopal and his son. If Ram Gopal Yadav runs, the party will end. In 2022, the Samajwadi Party will not get even 20 seats in the entire state.”
Hariom Singh Yadav has been facing allegations of anti-party activities for a long time. All SP leaders of Firozabad district came together against him and demanded the High Command to expel him from the party. The party’s state president Naresh Uttam had already thrown out the MLA’s son Vijay Pratap, accusing him of indulging in anti-party activities. At present, Hariom Singh Yadav is considered to be in Shivpal Singh Yadav’s camp.
