This comes after Mulayam Yadav openly vouched for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wished him to come back to power after winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav has again sounded a discordant note and hit out at son Akhilesh Yadav’s decision to join hands with former arch-rival Mayawati.
“Party ko khatam kaun kar raha hai? Apni hi party ke log. Itni mazboot party bani thi. Akele 3 baar sarkar banai, teeno baar hum CM rahe, Raksha Mantri bhi rahe, mazboot party thi. Hum rajneeti nahi kar rahe, lekin hum sahi baat rakh rahe hain.”
“Who is destroying the party? It’s very own people. It was such a solid party. We had formed the government thrice and I was the chief minister for three terms. I was even the defence minister once. I don’t want to bring politics into this but I am saying the right thing,” Mulayam Singh Yadav told party workers in UP on Thursday.
This comes after Mulayam Yadav openly vouched for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wished him to come back to power after winning the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. His son Akhilesh Yadav, on the other hand, is trying to oust BJP out of power from the electorally crucial Uttar Pradesh.
Addressing party workers at the SP headquarters, Mulayam Singh Yadav made clear that he was unhappy with Mayawati’s BSP being given “half” of the seats in the alliance for Uttar Pradesh ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.
Akhilesh Yadav’s SP and Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have decided to contest 37 and 38 seats each. They announced the seat-sharing formula on Thursday and immediately earned the wrath of Mulayam Singh Yadav.
