Mulayam Singh Yadav praised Lal Krishna Advani while addressing a rally on the occasion of the 103rd birth anniversary of Ram Manohar Lohia in Lucknow.
Mulayam Singh was in flow while analyzing the performance of UP government. He said that Advani told him regarding rampant corruption in U.P and he completely trusts his words.This is not the first time Mulayam criticised his own government.
Mulayam singh Yadav said “’I have been told that UP ministers are not working for the state. They are only involved in their personal work. Seniority will not do, ministers have to work. I am giving ministers 5 month of time.”
“Akhilesh, the government is not run by flexibility, but by (taking) tough stand. I know the situation (the government is in). The CM should conduct a review… and take stern action. It is the responsibility of the CM to implement the (party) manifesto ” Mulayam warned Akhilesh to focus on Law and order situation in U.P.
Mulayam also warned Akhilesh that if he will destroy his image, he may not come back in power again.
Praising political opponent is not unusual in India. Political opponents are good friends in real life.And time to time shower praise on their opponent .It is another matter that later on they deny them.
But this praise is a indication that new alliances may be formed in next Lok Sabha election.As lok Sabha elections are approaching and there is apprehension that Lok Sabha may be dissolved any time political parties are leaving no stone unturned to bring new partners to their side as old allies are going due to various reasons.
Though BJP and SP will not come together keeping in view their political compulsions but this ‘mulayam’ stand towards BJP is enough to indicate how things may look like in background.
BJP’s support to SP in Lok Sabha on Beni Parsad Verma issue is enough to get the hint. Whatever will be the scenario but Mulayam is ready to play the role of King maker in next LokSabha elections.
Mulayam has already lost the battle when SP alliances with Kalyan Singh Party.Since BJP is throwing its weight behind Narendra Modi so Mulayam will not dare to commit same mistake again but he is harbouring ambition to become Prime minister or atleast play the role of King Maker.So we should not be surprised if there is some unusual alliance after Lok Sabha election.
UPA lost Mamta and now DMK but they also found RLD and there should be no surprise if JDU also supports UPA in coming days. There are many political developments recently after DMK snapped ties with UPA and Beni Parsad Verma’s scathing attack on Mulayam Singh Yadav.
