Shivpal said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has "weakened" the country and wants to "instigate riots" for political gains in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, his elder brother Mulayam Singh Yadav, in his address, started talking about his own party instead.

"The SP carries everyone along with it, treats all human beings as equal irrespective of their caste and religion, so make the SP stronger," he said.

In August, Shivpal Yadav had launched 'Samajwadi Secular Morcha' after expressing his disappointment with the Samajwadi Party leadership.

The chemistry between the two brothers seems to have radically changed after Shivpal launched his political party. Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia), which is organising its debut 'Janakrosh Rally' at Ramabai Ambedkar ground in the state capital on Sunday.

The rally is being regarded as a show of strength by Shivpal Yadav who parted ways with the SP, accusing the parent party of neglecting him.
