Lucknow. Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav today shocked one and all by deciding to give a Lok Sabha ticket to a person without any criminal record to his credit.
Though he has not zeroed in on the candidate, but a massive statewide hunt to find one such person has been ordered by him.
Sources tell Faking News that senior party leaders and workers are worried about party’s prospects post this announcement. Some of them are terming it a suicidal move and fear that the party may lose its USP and charm.
“Heavens wouldn’t have fallen if this decision was not taken. It’s not as if some buffaloes have gone missing or Madhuri has refused to dance. A totally avoidable decision that Netaji should reconsider. He shouldn’t forget his roots,” senior leader Azam Khan said.
“We are a party that doesn’t discriminate against criminals. We have been trying to win their hearts. I will be shattered if this actually happens,” said Kanpur MLA Irfan Solanki, one of the leading activists fighting for inclusive growth of criminals in the society.
Solanki later kidnapped a few doctors to discuss with them if Mulayam Singh Yadav needed some medication.
Sources say that some SP leaders are even threatening to join other party or form a Super Samajwadi Party made of hardcore criminals if Mulayam Singh Yadav didn’t change his decision.
However, experts say it’s quite normal for national parties at times to do complete opposite of their perceived image.
“Well when AAP can give ticket to an ex-IAS officer who reversed Khemka’s orders, why can’t SP give a ticket to person with clean record,” reasoned one such expert.
Meanwhile, unfazed by all the criticism, Mulayam Singh defended this decision.
“adjueydu$@$%#skjfhsjd$#%jkjdhjk$#^%&^sdjkhf,” he said.
Meanwhile in other news, MNS has also planned to give a ticket to a person of Bihari origin through lucky draw, after it offered a ticket to Ishant Sharma.
