Akhilesh rides away with ‘bicycle’; Jagmohan Garg

Jagmohan Garg says the Election Commission on Monday allotted the “bicycle” symbol to the Akhilesh faction of the Samajwadi Party as the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister enjoyed majority in the party’s organisational and legislative structures. The EC concluded that there was indeed a split in the Samajwadi Party.


In its 42-page order, which has come as a big jolt to party founder Mulayam Singh, the Commission weighed the arguments put forth by him and the Akhilesh group: the first claiming that there was no split in the party and that he was still its national president, while the latter asserted that it enjoyed the majority and therefore, was entitled to the party symbol.
