Uttar Pradesh unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said sidelined leader Shivpal Yadav split from the Samajwadi Party (SP) because of internal party struggle and quarrel.

Saffron party asserted that a family-run political party breaks in the same manner.

"Whenever there is a party of a single family, it eventually disintegrates in this manner. All political parties in the country run by a family have witnessed such disintegration," news agency PTI quoted UP BJP media coordinator Rakesh Tripathi as saying.

BJP’s reaction came hours after Shivpal Yadav, in Lucknow, announced his own party-the Samajwadi Secular Morcha.

The move has come just eight months before the Lok Sabha elections 2019.

Uncle of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, Shivpal Yadav said, he was not only neglected in the party but was also not given any responsibility for two years.

Before the Uttar Pradesh Assembly poll in 2017, Shivpal Yadav was locked in a power struggle with Akhilesh Yadav.
