After the Hazratganj and Gomti Nagar police rejected Thakur’s complaint against Mulayam, the IPS officer had moved the CJM court.
Though JD(U) president Sharad Yadav tried to woo SP back to the “Grand Alliance”, Mulayam had reportedly made it clear that “politics and relationship” were separate things.
Sources in the Janata Parivar said it was a known fact that Mulayam did not have any mass base in Bihar. Therefore, they said, they were not worried about any prospect of a loss of votes.
SP general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav told reporter that the party would contest independently in Bihar and “jitna woh de rahe thai, ussey zyada jeetenge (will win more than what was being offered)”.
“We have decided to give three seats earlier allotted to the NCP and two others from the RJD quota to the Samajwadi Party in the Bihar elections,” Lalu told reporters in Patna Saturday.
Mulayam served the warning in clear words: “Bahut ghatak parinam aayenge. Sab bantadhar ho jayega (The results will be disastrous. Everything will be ruined)”.

As Mulayam Singh spoke in the House, Congress president Sonia Gandhi tried to stop him and Mallikarjun Kharge, leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, said the SP chief was giving only his opinion.
Mulayam also asked Akhilesh to “immediately hold meetings with his ministers” in regards to the panchayat polls since it will be these ministers who will “elect 36 MLCs”.
“I was given 15 days to reply to the charge sheet but I have submitted it within 24 hours…I am not at fault in any of the 16 points stated in the charge sheet,” Thakur told reporters later.
“I am very happy about the unity of Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar. Kumar will be the chief ministerial candidate for Bihar. Laluji has proposed Nitish Kumar’s name for the chief ministership. There are no differences,”Mulayam Singh Yadav said.
‘I have said the government should do one miraculous work immediately after taking oath and another after six months.’
