Mulayam’s birthday bash: Rides imported buggy, cuts 75 kg cake

Mulayam Singh Yadav marked his 75th birthday in style, riding an imported Victorian- style ‘buggy’ in Rampur on Friday. However, controversy followed when party leader and minister Azam Khan, when asked about the funding for the event, quipped that the money has come from the Taliban and Dawood Ibrahim.
