Akhilesh Yadav chooses Ram Govind Chaudhary as opposition leader in UP

Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav has finally selected eight-time MLA and former minister Ram Govind Chaudhary as Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly and leader of the SP Legislature Party. Chaudhary's loyalty to Akhilesh made him leader of opposition in the state Assembly. He was one of the few ministers who had openly supported the former chief minister during the tussle with his father Mulayam Singh Yadav over control of the party before Assembly elections. Chaudhary became a core member of the Akhilesh group during the family feud. Chaudhary is an MLA from Bansdih seat of Ballia district. SP spokesperson and MLC Rajendra Chaudhary said Akhilesh had been authorised by the MLAs to name their leader in Assembly during an earlier party meeting.
