An image of Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat that is being widely shared on social media has set a war of words among the key political players in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the keenly watched Assembly election set to be held next year.

According to multiple reports, the two veteran leaders met at the wedding reception of Vice President Venkaiah Naidu’s granddaughter in Delhi.

An image of the gathering shared by the Congress’ UP unit showed Yadav and Bhagwat sitting together on a sofa and the latter is seen blessing Union minister Arjun Meghwal.
