Former Samajwadi Party chief, Mulayam Singh Yadav, on Monday dismissed reports of forming a new party as of now. Prior to his press conference, there was speculation that he may float a new party. However, no such announcement was made by him.
Addressing the media in Lucknow, “I am not forming a new party as of now. I would make more announcements in the coming days.”
However, the former UP chief minister, expressed dissent over the decisions taken by the party chief and his son, Akhilesh Yadav.
“He is my son so my blessings are with him but I don’t agree with his decisions. What those decisions are is something I will talk about in the coming days,” he said.
Mulayam also slammed the Centre and the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government over several issues including the recent Banaras Hindu University (BHU) violence, the rising petrol prices and farmer loan waivers.
“None of the promises made by the Centre were fulfilled in three years of its governance. Petrol-diesel prices are skyrocketing. Girls are not safe in BHU. The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh has become worse. The situation of farmers has also deteriorated. Farmers have been sufferers under the Yogi government,” he said.
Mulayam also asked the Opposition to join hands and unite against the Bharatiya Janata Party.
