In a swift move, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday sacked his uncle Shivpal Singh Yadav as a senior minister in his cabinet.

Akhilesh also sacked four other ministers—Narad Rai, Om Prakash, Shadab Fatima, Gayatri Prasad Prajapati—all considered close to Shivpal Singh Yadav, who is also the state unit chief of the Samajwadi Party (SP).

The development comes as a jolt to the efforts at truce between the two warring factions in the ruling Samajwadi Party.

It indicates the party is heading towards something big, sources told IANS
