Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the country needed a youthful political party like the SP and exhorted party workers to work for farmers, youths and traders, who were presently the most suppressed class.
Addressing a function where several leaders of other parties joined the SP at party’s state office in Lucknow on Saturday, Yadav attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party without taking names and said that now for some politics meant dividing society on religion, caste and creed basis.
“You will have to fight against the evil forces that are dividing society and only the SP can do this as it is a party of youths,” he said.
The SP patriarch further said that the world was undergoing changes and the trend was underway in India also.
“My views on this are appreciated by all parliamentarians in the Lok Sabha and even by the BJP members,” he said.
The presence of Mulayam Singh Yadav at the function organised by Akhilesh Yadav reaffirmed the widely held belief that the SP patriarch has put his weight behind his son and discarded his brother Shivpal Singh Yadav, who floated a new political outfit after being ousted from the party by Akhilesh in 2016.
