ETAWAH (UP): After staying away from campaigning till now, SP patriarch Mualyam Singh Yadav today addressed his first rally where he sought votes for brother Shivpal, saying the election is important for both of them.
Mulayam, who was removed as party president with his son Akhilesh Yadav taking over the reins just before the polls following a bitter turf battle with Shivpal, also made no mention of the SP-Congress alliance which he had publicly opposed.
In his 30-minute speech in Takha block of Jaswantnagar which he represented before he handed it over to his brother, the SP leader stressed that these elections were important, especially for him and Shivpal.
Significantly, Mulayam also did not speak about any other political party and only concentrated on seeking votes for Shivpal by stating the works done by SP.
“Youth are the real strength of SP and maximum youths are with SP and so our party never ages…,” Mulayam said, adding though unemployment was a national problem, maximum jobs have been given in UP and those who had not got jobs were given allowance. (AGENCIES)
