Mayawati says Mulayam genuinely cares for marginalised unlike Modi

Mayawati, Bahujan Samaj Party chief, sat between Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party on stage in Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri, today, scripting a big moment in their new relationship after 24 years of bitter political rivalry. Mayawati and Mulayam Singh had last shared stage in 1995.

Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati arrived for a joint rally of the grand-alliance in Mainpuri Lok Sabha constituency. In his address, Mulayam Singh Yadav thanked Mayawati for attending the rally in support of his candidature.

“I am thankful to Mayawati and would remain obliged to her for coming here to seek vote for me,” said Mulayam Singh, who is contesting the Lok Sabha polls from Mainpuri.“Always extend respect to Mayawatiji because she has always stood by us in the times of need. I am happy she has come here to seek vote for me,” Mulayam Singh told his party workers.

Mayawati urged the people of Mainpuri to vote for her once arch-rival and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav. She said the BSP and SP have come together in national interest to oust BJP from power at the centre.

Calling PM Modi a ‘nakli’ (fake) backward leader, the BSP chief praised Mulayam Singh for genuinely caring for the marginalised sections of society. She also praised his son and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav for being a true leader.

Slamming the Congress and the BJP, Mayawati said, “We won’t give any false promises like them. Jumla and drama will not work.”

Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati have been bitter rivals since 1995 when SP cadres allegedly attacked the state guest house where the BSP chief had been camping with her supporters.
