Ahead of the Samajwadi Party's national executive meeting in Agra, Akhilesh Yadav & uncle Shivpal have spoken twice, and the rift between them seems to be mending. After feud in the Yadav family, Akhilesh Yadav and his uncle Ram Gopal Yadav joined hands and Shivpal Yadav, Mulayam were sidelined.

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav addresses a press conference in Agra on Wednesday, on the eve of the party's national convention.

Now that 44-year-old Akhilesh will remain at the helm for five years, the 2019 Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections in2022 will be held under his presidentship.

Earlier, the Samajwadi Party chief had a tenure of three years but the party constitution was amended to extend it to five years.

The other highlight of the meeting is the reunion of the father and the son.

The relationship between Shivpal and Akhilesh grew bitter in September a year ago when Mulayam replaced Akhilesh with Shivpal as state party chief.

Meanwhile, both junior and senior Yadav have a few times indicated their differences against each other.

The other mostly younger leaders appeared to stand firmly behind Akhilesh Yadav, who led the Samajwadi Party to defeat in this year's assembly elections shortly after staging a coup against his father.

However, while Akhilesh was the cynosure of all eyes, his father and party founder Mulayam Singh was on everyone's lips.

Another major agenda of the meeting will be the discussion on upcoming Lok Sabha by-elections to be held in Gorakhpur and Phulpur on the seats vacated by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya.

After his re-election as national president of the party, Akhilesh said that only SP had the "capability" to "take on" the BJP in Uttar Pradesh as well as in the country.
