Lucknow: Yesterday Uttar Pradesh Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav had praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wished that the latter returns to power. Now, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said Samajwadi chief Akhilesh Yadav should accept the truth which his father spoke in Parliament.
Commenting on Mulayam`s comment, Adityanath said, "This is the truth, and truth always wins. What Mulayamji said in the Parliament is the truth, I am sure like Mulayamji, his son should also accept this truth."
The comment came after SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav had praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and wished that the latter returns to power after the General Elections this year. In Loksabha, Yadav said, “I congratulate the Prime Minister because he has tried to take everybody along. I want to say that all members must win and come again and Narendra Modi should become the Prime Minister again."
The SP leader’s stance is being perceived as a jolt to the efforts of Akhilesh Yadav who had joined hands with the opposition parties to counter the BJP in the general elections.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi welcomed the remarks by thumping his desk but Sonia gandhi who was setting next to Yadav did not show any emotion.
