Lucknow:  After Harvard University's invitation to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, his uncle and senior Cabinet Minister Shivpal Yadav has been invited by John Hopkins University, US, to deliver a lecture on flood control, official sources said.
"Yadav, who holds Irrigation Department along with other portfolios, has been invited by Hopkins University to deliver lecture on flood control and expediting water sector restructuring project in Uttar Pradesh," said a senior official.
The minister has, however, not given any confirmation about accepting the invitation.

Akhilesh Yadav was invited to deliver a lecture at Harvard University in Boston last month on the recent Maha Kumbh Mela at Allahabad.
Azam Khan, a senior leader of the ruling Samajwadi Party in UP and Urban Development Minister, who was accompanying Yadav, was detained for about 10 minutes at the Boston Logan International Airport for ‘further questioning’. Following the detention of Azam, Yadav boycotted the Harvard lecture.
