Samajwadi Party president Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has failed to fulfil any of his election-time commitments, including the promise to bring the black money back.

"Modi worked hard and got success (in the Lok Sabha elections). But he has not fulfilled any of the promises....such as providing jobs to each and every youngster, which influenced the youth at great extent. But not a single youngster was given job," Yadav said.

Yadav and his son Akhilesh Yadav, who is the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh were in the city on Saturday to attend a function in the family of former Medical Council of India president Ketan Desai. They were accompanied by SP MP Naresh Agrawal and Congress leader Rajiv Shukla.

Speaking to reporters at the airport, Yadav said, "Modi claimed Rs 15 lakh will be deposited in every citizen's account by bringing the black money back. Did he fulfil that promise?....I want to ask him why that money has not been given to the people yet."

"When he became the PM, I asked all my party leaders not to comment on his performance for a period of six months. Some of them were not happy about this decision. But when Modi finishes six months, everyone will speak."

Yadav however admitted that Third Front proved "weak" in stopping the BJP.

"We (the Third Front) have been fighting against BJP for long. We had finished BJP in the past, but somehow they formed the government in the Centre. We need to find out whose weakness was responsible for BJP's rise," he said.
