Bihar CM Nitish Yadav today addressed his party workers at Patna and took digs at the political turmoil in Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh. The CM tried adding fuel to the fire burning in Samajwadi Party and the Mulayam’s family rift.
The Bihar Chief Minister slammed SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav and praised his son Akhilesh Yadav instead. He said that Akhilesh has the potential and if he does not take risks now, he will not gain.
This comes after the SP has been in news for an internal conflict within the party. While Akhilesh had few days back said that if nobody else, he is ready to campaign alone for the upcoming UP polls in 2017. Later, Mulayam had rebuked the statement saying the MPs and elected parliamentary board will decide who the CM of Uttar Pradesh will be.
The JD(U) leader added ”We were trying to form an anti-BJP party under the leadership of Mulayam Singh but Mulayam and his party itself in a mess now.”
Nitish also said that if only UP imposes full liquor ban just like Bihar, he and his party are ready to extend support to Samajwadi Party.
Talking on the recent unrest in the nation post numerous ceasfire violations and attacks from Pakistan side, Nitish said ”when it comes to national security, we will stand united with Centre and Army but we don’t support the internal politics of issue.”
