Lucknow || A day after Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) called off its electoral alliance with the Samajwadi Party (SP) for “all big and small future elections“, Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh on Tuesday targeted SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and called him “Aurangzeb“. In a video tweet, the former SP general secretary liked Akhilesh to the Mughal ruler who he said: “had caged his own father to ensure no threat to his throne“.
He also called his former boss and friend Mulayam Singh Yadav as the “lonely and last Mughal ruler Bahadur Shah Zafar“. Sad to note the state of Mulayam Singh Ji, in his sunset years, Singh said.
Known infamously as Akhilesh Yadav’s “Amar uncle”, Singh fell out with the former UP chief minister for allegedly siding with Mulayam and his brother Shivpal Singh Yadav, both considered by Akhilesh as “working against his political growth and image”.
Singh also called Akhilesh Kalidas and cited how he also cut the same tree branch on which he was sitting thereby meaning that he cut off the very people who watered his formative years in politics. He also endorsed Mayawati’s accusation against Akhilesh that he was anti-Muslim. Mulayam has been keeping very unwell for the past many months, having been edged out in party affairs.
Amar Singh after a brief return to the party was later expelled by Akhilesh Yadav, accusing him of trying to draw a wedge between the father-son.
