        A said way this farlther son due party is coming to an end due Kakai. But Dhashrath had given her his words. The SP does not exist on the national maplt;br/gt; excetp UP. The party has no future anyway. Maybe Akhilest should join BJP to teach a lession to all Kakai bhakts.

              It is not the end of Royal conspiracy of Shajahan and Aurangazeb. Who is the winner of this match? Democracy is crumbled down due to dadagiri of Mullah Yadav Jagirdar like Goonda Azam Khan etc.

                The crisis of Subhidawadi party makes way for Hathi Mayawati to create more statue of life size statue of herself. UP and Bihar can export poverty and dadagiri because of Akhilesh and Nitish kumar and Laluu company.
