“PM ko badhaai dena chahta hun ki PM ne sabko saath lekar chalne ki koshish ki hai. Main kehna chahta hun ki saare sadaysa phir se jeet kar aayen, aur aap (PM) dobara pradhan mantri banein [I want to thank PM Modi for taking everyone into consensus. I wish that every member of the house and especially you (PM Modi) return to being Prime Minister again],” said Mulayam Singh Yadav, a veteran in Indian politics.
“Meri kaamna hai ki pradhaanmantri ji aap phirse pradhaanmantri banein. Mera anubhav hai ki main jab bhi aap se mila, aapne turant mera kaam kiya [I wish that PM Modi, you should become the prime minister again. I have experienced that whenever I met you, you got my work done instantly],” said Mulayam Singh Yadav.
Akhilesh Yadav, who is the current chief of the Samajwadi Party (SP) has already joined hands with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) to contest against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi led BJP in the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the upcoming general elections.
Interestingly, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi was seen perplexed, who was seated next to the Mulayam Singh when he expressed his gratitude towards Prime Minister Modi.
