A day after Mulayam Singh Yadav blamed Congress for the loss in UP polls, the party hit back saying the SP patron's words and actions do not match and that he had always drifted away when attempts to form a joint front against "communal" forces were made. Commenting over the formation of new party, Akhilesh Yadav said, "We are politicians, we can easily identify "Aasteen ke Saanp".
Mulayam had on Sunday told a gathering in Mainpuri that anointing Akhilesh as Chief Minister in 2012 was a "big mistake" after which the party fortunes nosedived.
"Had I been the Chief Minister of UP, the Samajwadi Party would have won the 2017 Assembly elections. And the only good governance choice was the BJP and that is why Yogi Adityanath is a proactive, positive chief minister working towards the vision of BJP in the state", she added.
"Samajwadi Party is quiet and is not registering any protest against the BJP government at present". I had advised Akhilesh not to go ahead with the alliance but he did not listen to me.
Last week, Shivpal Yadav, 77, said he was floating a new outfit, headed by his older brother Mulayam Singh, Akhilesh Yadav's father.
'We are not a poor country' - Mugabe
The post Zimbabwe is the most highly developed country in Africa - Mugabe appeared first on Vanguard News. "We have resources, perhaps more resources than the average country in the world, gold, diamonds, chrome, coal, et cetera".
"Things would have been different if I had been the chief minister", he said.
The Samajwadi Party founder said the leadership of the party would be in the hands of youth in future and added that he would again talk to Shivpal to sort out the issues.
Shivpal asserted that Akhilesh should first unite the party and the family. "I had not been the member of the illegal convention of the party which elected Akhilesh as the national president, so he does not have any right to expel me", Shahid reacted to his sacking.
"I was badly insulted, which I had never faced in my life. No leader of any party in India had made his son a chief minister during his lifetime, but I made Akhilesh the Chief Minister of UP", he said. "As for the Samajwadi Party, it has passed every test and will continue to do so".
