It happened that PM Modi was shaking everyone’s hands as he was leaving the stage. He then turned back when Mulayam called him and they all shook hands. It was then that Mulayam leaned forward and whispered something in PM’s ear that made him throw his head back and laugh. The secret was not revealed by anyone concerned.
Till now. On May 5, that is today, former CM Akhilesh Yadav while attending Aaj Tak’s event Panchayat revealed what that one joyful moment that was shared between the father-son duo with PM Modi. When asked about what Mulayam Yadav said to PM Modi at the swearing in ceremony, he revealed, “you will not believe but Neta ji said, ‘beware, he is my son’.”
At the same event Akhilesh said that BJP made false promises to people and even though the Samajwadi Party did so much work for the people, it was rejected. When asked about his strategy for the next elections, Akhilesh said he still has the ‘cycle’ and will prepare for the next elections as there is a lot of time in it. He asked, “Why is nation worried about SP?” Talking about his future, Akhilesh said he is not sure whether he’ll be the CM again or not but no one will be able to match the work he did as the head of the state.
