The Samjawadi Party (SP) Saturday cancelled party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav’s proposed rally in his parliamentary constituency Azamgarh on October 6. The rally, Mulayam’s first in the run up to the next year’s Assembly polls, was scheduled to be held at ITI ground where BSP chief Mayawati had held a public meeting last month.

Party’s state headquarters in Lucknow conveyed the decision to its Azamgarh unit in the afternoon. While party spokesperson Mohd Shahid refused to give a reason behind cancellation, sources said that the recent feud within top SP brass could have led to the decision.
