"Nobody in the party is unhappy". He (Shivpal) has not spoken to me or anyone in the party. He may have said that in anger. When Mulayam made this statement in Delhi, there was no firework in UP or distribution of candies in party headquarters in Lucknow as workers generally do in politics to score points with senior leaders."We are busy with Bhaiya's (Akhilesh's) campaign".
