The next Assembly elections will be contested under his (Akhilesh) leadership. The development he initiated is visible across the state, Mulayam Singh Yadav said.
CBI had in 2013 cleared Yadav of charges that he misused his office as chief minister of Uttar Pradesh to accumulate vast amounts of wealth.
26-year-old Aparna will contest the 2017 Assembly election from Lucknow’s Cantonment Assembly seat.
Keeping in mind the Assembly elections next year, the government plans to complete all the proposed development works by October 2016.
Aparna Yadav’s performance is regular feature at the annual show with organisers paying her Rs 1 lakh.
The SP chief, however, didn’t take the names of the Bisara village in Dadri area of Gautam Budh Nagar or the victim 50-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq who was killed by a mob on September 28.
The SP leaders claim that Mulayam is only speaking from the heart is also unconvincing as a shrewd politician like Mulayam knows only too well the implications of his statements.
Mulayam, who was the then Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, had ordered firing on karsewaks in Ayodhya in 1990 in which 16 people were killed.
“I told him to listen to these people but do not act,” Mulayam said.
Interestingly, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has been opposing nepotism and feudalism in politics.
Mulayam also lashed out at SP leaders who have been appointed as MLCs by the party.
The SP chief further said, “The chugalkhor had even created differences between Raj Narain and Choudhary Charan Singh. I tried to bring everyone together.”
Sources inform that Mulayam asked Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to expel the three leaders against whom complaints were received.
