On Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav voicing his displeasure over the tie-up between Samajwadi Party and Congress, Adityanath claimed that Mulayam is “afraid” that the alliance would alienate the backward cast people from Samajwadi Party.

On Sunday, hours after his son and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi held their first joint press conference in Lucknow and held a road show displaying great bonhomie, Mulayam had said, “I am completely against the alliance. I will not campaign for it.”
