New Delhi: Mulayam Singh Yadav was once the most prominent leader in Uttar Pradesh. Mulayam Singh, who was born on this day in 1939 in Saifai (Saifai), a small village in Etawah district, left an ordinary family and ruled the siayat of the whole state of Uttar Pradesh. Mulayam's political career in Uttar Pradesh, known as Netaji, is remembered for more scandals than accomplishments. He served as Uttar Pradesh's chief minister three times and as the country's defence minister once, but his controversial words and activities surrounded him each time. On his birthday, we'll tell you about some of his other controversies, which have been in the headlines not just in Uttar Pradesh but also in the political world.
When the car servants were fired at:-
Thousands of Ram worshippers converged in Ayodhya for karseva on October 30, 1990. Mulayam Singh Yadav was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh at the time. Mulayam Singh Yadav, perplexed by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) programme, ordered a harsh crackdown. After Mulayam's command, the police lathicharged the karsevaks and then shot indiscriminately at the Ram bhakts as they approached the rammandir. Hundreds of karsevaks died, and many more were wounded. Mulayam Singh Yadav later stated at a public forum in Mainpuri district on February 6, 2014 that police opened fire on kar sevaks in Ayodhya in 1990 on his own instructions. Mulayam Singh was badly defeated in the 1991 assembly elections after the shooting of Ram bhakts and the BJP managed to form the government with an absolute majority.
Mulayam Singh Yadav, the founder of the Samajwadi Party, came under fire after saying during a gathering in Moradabad that it was wrong to sentence him to death in rape cases. Boys are boys, and they make errors. In rape instances, Mulayam has stated that no one should be hanged. Boys make mistakes and should not be sentenced to death as a result of them. According to him, even boys are sometimes suspected of being involved in crimes. Boys make blunders. Such laws must be amended. At the time, Mulayam Singh Yadav's comments had sparked debate across the country.
