Lucknow: Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has lashed out at his own party’s leaders today for falling behind rivals BSP and BJP in making controversial statements. As UP elections approach fast, Mulayam Singh is not happy at all with this lethargy among his cadre. Elections in India’s most populous state are likely to happen in 1st quarter of 2017.
Speaking at a party meet in Lucknow, Mulayam Singh scolded every leader present and asked them to work hard to embarrass the party during their speeches. Earlier, a BJP leader Dayashankar Singh had made objectionable comments about BSP supremo Mayawati which led to his expulsion from BJP. BSP leaders responded by making objectionable comments about Dayashankar’s family. This has hurt Mr. Mulayam that Samajwadi party wasn’t named at all during this entire event.
“Elections are just a few months away and all our leaders are sleeping? BJP leader made stupid statement, BSP responded with stupid comments, where is SP? Aise aayega Samajwad? Our leaders must understand that if we are not audible now, nobody will hear our plea for votes on the Election Day. Samajwadi Party had led everyone else for 2 decades in the race to make controversial statements, we are not going to fall behind now”, Mulayam Singh told our reporter.
“We have the best players in the game. Azam Khan is there, Beni Prasad is there, Shivpal can also deliver. Amar Singh can always come up with a googly and where is that Totaram Yadav. Earlier I could have managed myself but now I am too old for this. I have to act like a statesman but all these other leaders should play on the front foot. We can’t be seen as more sensible than the other parties”, Mulayam added.
After Mulayam Singh’s scolding, both Azam Khan and Beni Prasad Verma have called their press conferences to make statements which are likely to keep the news channels busy for at elast the next fortnight.
