Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had earlier said she favoured a pre-poll alliance with the Samajwadi Party led by Akhilesh Yadav, and that she is ready to step aside as Congress chief ministerial candidate for Uttar Pradesh. He also accused Ram Gopal Yadav of moving ahead to split SP to see his MP son and daughter-in-law saved from the CBI which is probing their link in the multi-crore Yadav Singh scam. The hearing in the Commssion on the issue lasted for almost 5 hours. It stand was that nearly entire party elected Akhilesh as the party president and so it can't be termed a split as painted in the media. The Mulayam camp also argued that since no resolution was passed at the convention called by Ram Gopal removing Mulayam as the party president, para 15 of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968 did not apply in the case. The Mulayam camp then argued that the convention in which Akhilesh was anointed as the party chief was against the Samajwadi Party constitution. Chowdhary Sunil Singh, the national president of Lok Dal, confirmed that the SP leaders were in contact said that he would be more than happy to accommodate Mulayam Singh Yadav in the party fold if the situation so arose. The poll panel announced the date of hearing on Tuesday, a day after both factions - led by Mulayam and Akhilesh - submitted their rebuttal to each other's claims over control of the party. The Akhilesh camp has not made a submission to suggest that the party is split.

"Both the sides staked claim on the election symbol".
