"Public wants mangal (well-being) not dangal (fight), no matter with what symbol Saifai family contests elections, people will oust them," Maurya told ANI.

In fact, the Election Commission on Friday reserved its order on allotting the SP's symbol, which has been claimed by both party supremo Mulayam Yadav and son and UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

In has been a while since the father and son are involved in a bitter public battle to control the reins of the 25 years old political outfit. Political pundits say in all likelihood SP is heading towards a split in the coming days.
