Hathras: Dismissing his uncle Shivpal Yadav's threat on Tuesday to float a new party, Samajwadi Party president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said he has the blessings of his father and the "entire family is one".

"The entire family is one...I have the blessings of Netaji...we will win over 300 (of the 403) seats in alliance with Congress this time," Akhilesh told a public meeting in Sikandaru for the candidates of the SP-Congress alliance on Sadabad, Sikandarau and Hathras seats.

Earlier in the day Shivpal had said, "I will form a new party after March 11 when results (of UP Assembly elections) are out. You make the government, we will make a new party."

Akhilesh also talked of his partys alliance with the Congress in the rally.

"I had come here in 2012 and today I come again and also brought the election symbol of Congress hand with our own bicycle," "With hand, the bicycle will run faster," he stressed.

Cautioning people against BJP, Akhilesh alleged that it belonged to those who tell "lies".

"The Prime Minister speaks about his Mann Ki Baat on TV but man to chanchal hota hai it keeps changing its stand... people of the country were made to stand in long queues before banks and were subjected to trouble...the jobless were not given jobs and even those working in factories were rendered jobless because of the note ban," he said.
"The Prime Minister of the country said that your achchhe din are coming soon but today people are longing for their old days and asking how can they be restored," he said.

Criticising BSP, he said its leader installed elephants which do no work and have been standing idle.

Akhilesh also cited various development works undertaken by his govenrment in the past five years.
