Akhilesh, Mulayam share public space after several months

Friday, October 13, 2017

Lucknow: After a gap of several months, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav were seen together at a public event here today, triggering speculation of a possible rapprochement.

The occasion was a function at the Lohia Park to mark the 50th death anniversary of socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia.

After paying floral tributes together at Lohia's statue, the father-son chatted amid slogan shouting by party workers. They later posed for shutterbugs.

Mulayam Singh Yadav, who was unseated as the SP chief by Akhilesh Yadav in January, moved in a golf cart with his son and waved at excited party workers.

Akhilesh Yadav, 44, touched the feet of his 77-year-old father, who is the SP patron.

Mulayam Singh Yadav's younger brother Shivpal Yadav was, however, conspicuous by his absence.

Earlier this morning, Mulayam Singh Yadav had visited the Lohia Trust office here and paid tributes to the socialist leader alongwith Shivpal Yadav.

Later, at the the SP headquarters, Akhilesh Yadav was asked about his relations with Mulayam Singh Yadav.

"If a father glosses over his son's mistakes, the child may lose way...There is fight of ideologies in every family," Akhilesh Yadav said, apparently referring to critical remarks made by Mulayam Singh Yadav in the past about his functioning.

After getting re-elected as the SP chief last week in Agra, Akhilesh Yadav had met his father in Lucknow to seek his blessings. Akhilesh Yadav drove down to his father's house on October 7 and spent over half an hour with him.

Before the Agra convention too, Akhilesh Yadav had met Mulayam Singh Yadav to invite him. However, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Shivpal Yadav had given it a miss.

The back-to-back meetings between the father and son kindled hopes of party workers of a reconciliation between them.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)This is the right time to ask for help if you need it. Adjustments are necessary almost at every level. You must adapt to some things that you cannot change. Do not be rigid and accept readily with grace. Use your money wisely, for there may be several demands. A long distance journey to a pilgrim spot or the need to meet a person you look up to is likely. The need to get an unbiased opinion about your affairs is strong.
