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.

“The Prime Minister should make a statement that there would be no review of reservation as suggested by the RSS chief,” Yadav said.
Amar Singh was present when the SP supremo cut the cake at a grand function organised at Athletics Stadium, Saifai late last evening.
The bash failed to live up to the hype, with Bollywood stars such as Amitabh Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan and political heavyweights such as RJD chief Lalu Prasad and H D Deve Gowda staying away.
In the evening, Mulayam will attend his birthday celebrations with a live performance by music composer A R Rehman at athletics stadium in Saifai.
