Mulayam Singh praises Prajapati, calls him ‘influential leader’

He announced that SP will celebrate the silver jubilee of its inception on November 5 and Prajapati, who was last month dismissed from the Akhilesh Yadav cabinet on graft charges before being reinducted, will be its convenor.

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Friday termed UP Transport Minister Gayatri Prasad Prajapati an “influential leader” who is devoted to the party. He announced that SP will celebrate the silver jubilee of its inception on November 5 and Prajapati, who was last month dismissed from the Akhilesh Yadav cabinet on graft charges before being reinducted, will be its convenor.

“SP has ensured honour to the poor, women and backwards. It is the miracle of SP policies that people from common families such as Prajapati became a cabinet minster. He (Prajapati) is now an influential minister and an influential leader who travels all over the state,” he said, pointing at Prajapati who was sitting beside him at a press meet. He directed all party MP, MLAs, ministers and workers to participate in SP’s silver jubilee celebrations.
