SP's election symbol is my signature: Mulayam Singh Yadav

After days of wrangling and sordid tug of war to gain control over the party and its headquarters, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has left for Delhi to approach the Election Commission of India on Monday to stake claim on the party symbol 'cycle'.

Before leaving for Delhi, Mulayam interacted with the media and said that Samajwadi Party's election symbol is his signature.

Amar Singh and Shivpal Yadav will also visit election Commission with Mulayam Singh at 2 PM today.

Where Mulayam has left for the national capital, Akhilesh Yadav ' title='Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav '>Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has called a meeting of party MLAs at 11am.

Akhilesh will also approach the Election Commission of India to stake claim on the party symbol 'cycle'.

According to sources, both factions of the party -- one headed by patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and other by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav -- were likely to tell the ECI that they were the actual SP and furnish evidences supporting their claims.

While Mulayam Singh himself left to meet the ECI, Akhilesh faction will send party national General-Secretary-turned-mentor Ram Gopal Yadav as its emissary to the poll panel.

Having upstaged his father and the party supremo to appoint himself as the Working National President of the party at an "emergency national convention", Akhilesh on Sunday also replaced state unit chief Shivpal Singh with his loyalist and Member of Legislative Council Naresh Uttam.

The convention, declared illegal and unconstitutional by Mulayam Singh, also expelled Amar Singh from the party on Sunday.
