"Pariwar ek tha, ek hai aur ek rahega (The family was together and will always remain united)", he said in response to a media query on whether differences within the Yadav clan had been resolved. "It is only inaugurating projects which the Samajwadi Party had initiated by replacing our plaques with their plaques", said Akhilesh referring to a controversy over Sri Ram Hospital in Ayodhya whose ICU ward is to be inaugurated by the CM on October 18 while the SP has claimed that it had already been inaugurated in the last regime.

We will only gain. "This government is not doing any development and people have understood that", he said.
