UP Elections 2017 7 X-factors that will determine Akhilesh Yadav's fate

"A single person can not be blamed", he said in Saifai, his native village, where he will celebrate Holi.

Saturday was a very unfortunate day for the Samajwadi Party as it was swept away in the state by BJP.

Shivpal Yadav, a master organiser and a grassroots leader of the party, said: "This is a defeat of arrogance not of the Samajwadi Party".

Sidelined SP leader Shivpal Yadav, who won from his seat in Uttar Pradesh where his party suffered a rout, has vowed to fight back in the state. The Samajwadi Party, whose tally shrunk to a mere 47 seats in the Assembly elections, had romped home in 2012 winning an absolute majority with 224 seats.

Milton Man Charged for Possession of Child Pornography
Timothy Gerbode, 29, reportedly admitted to investigators that he knowingly downloaded child pornography. He's been charged with possession of child pornography and making child pornography available to others.

The counting across the five states of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Uttarakhand and Manipur began at 8 a.m. this morning. After two month power tussle in the Yadav family, Akhilesh overcome all odds to get hold of the party. The agitated expelled leader also highlighted the incapabilities that ailed the party which also caused them a brutal defeat in the UP 2017 elections. SP's main soul is Mulayam Singh Yadav ji and Congress party failed to gauge that sentiment. Shivpal Singh, who won from the Jaswant Nagar constituency, took a swipe at Akhilesh, saying people had delivered a referendum on arrogant leaders, and not the party.

"In today's political scenario, people who rose to power due to dynasty rule like Rahul Gandhi ji, Akhilesh Yadav ji, Sukhbir Badal ji, Stalin ji and others, should introspect if the present Indian society is willing to accept dynasty politics", Singh added.

However, later on Sunday he said the onus of the party's defeat should not be put on his son.

"We were in a position to win the election and form the government on our own", he reiterated while addressing his partymen at Janeshwar Misra Trust office here in the afternoon.
