Election Commission of India witnessed an interesting exchange of arguments when the body heard the much controversial Samajwadi Party’s father-son duo case. UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and Mulayam Singh Yadav’s argument over the party symbol – cycle. According to the reports, the hearing went on for four long hours and the Election Commission reserved its order at the end of it.

Mohan Parasaran is a Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court. Parasaran too has served as the Solicitor General of India from 2013-2014.
