We have to take everyone along. Post (in the government) did not matter. We are followers of Ram Manohar Lohia and will follow his ideals: Shivpal

* Some intruders have entered (in the party) and are creating atmosphere (of differences)...You (Akhilesh) can insult me anytime...What you want from me just tell me and I will not say anthing...But whenever question of netaji (Mulayam) arise, I myself, the entire party will take a stand and not tolerate. I have to stay with netaji: Shivpal

* I want to tell popular CM Akhilesh that whatever sacrifice you want from me, I will give. I never want to become CM. You can insult me, sack me many times (as minister) but I can even give my blood for the party: Shivpal Yadav to Akhilesh. 

* You (CM) have done a good job. But I have also done a good job in past four years in the ministries given to me. You can verify works done by me in PWD, irrigation, Revenue, Cooperative and others departments

* It is because of Netaji's (Mulayam Singh Yadav) struggle and the risks he took that SP was able to form govt in UP not once but thrice: SP's Uttar Pradesh unit chief Shivpal Singh Yadav

* There are no talks of coalition now. Mulayam Singh Yadav can tell better. SP is the bigger party here. Talking much on this will not be appropriate at this time: JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav

We are here to strengthen SP. We have chased away BJP in Bihar. Just like 'geedad' (jackal) is chased away we will chase away BJP from UP too: RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav
