Mulayam Singh Yadav refuses to campaign for the SP-Congress alliance

As UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi flaunted the SP-Congress alliance addressing a road show in Lucknow, Samajwadi Party patriarch and Akhilesh Yadav’s father Mulayam Singh Yadav disregarded the tie-up and refused to campaign for the new political set-up.

According to NDTV reports, Mulayam said SP was capable of winning the election and forming a government on its own and that the alliance was uncalled for.

“We contested the elections alone and we got the majority and formed the government,” Mulayam said referring to the 2012 assembly polls. “I have always opposed the Congress which has ruled for so long but has done nothing for the development of the nation.”
“I am totally against the alliance between the Samajwadi Party and the Congress and will not campaign for this tie-up in the election” he added.Mulayam said this arrangement will hit the SP functionaries who had been working in these assembly seats with the hope of contesting the elections. “SP leaders who lost their seats as part of the alliance deal, what will they do for the next five years?” Mulayam said.

Mulayam, disappointed about Congress having 105 seats in the upcoming election, said that this arrangement will offend the SP functionaries who had been working in these assembly seats with the hope of contesting the elections. “SP leaders who lost their seats as part of the alliance deal, what will they do for the next five years?” Mulayam said.
