"Akhilesh Yadav is all set to be elected as SP national president for the next five years because soon after Assembly poll, Akhilesh had revised the terms of state and national chief from three years to five years", he said.

A proposal to nominate Akhilesh as party chief by extending the term to five years was passed by the national convention of the party on Thursday. The announcement to this effect was made by SP general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav. Party's convention begun yesterday at Agra. This was later followed with Akhilesh meeting his father during which Mulayam is believed to have advised him to take older party members along with him.

The development is significant because it was the struggle to gain greater control over the party for the February-March state assembly elections that had led to a rift in the Yadav family.

Though SP patron and Akhilesh's father Mulayam Singh Yadav and the latter's younger brother and senior SP leader Shivpal Singh Yadav were not present at the convention, Akhilesh claimed that both of them had "blessed" him.

The fissures in the father-son relationship, however, remain as Mulayam Singh was conspicuously missing from the scene before the key party convention despite Akhilesh personally inviting him for the meet.

The relationship between Shivpal and Akhilesh grew bitter in September a year ago when Mulayam replaced Akhilesh with Shivpal as state party chief.
