ll eyes are trained on the match be­tween Rahul Gandhi and Naren­dra Modi. But there’s another man de­ter­mined to be­come prime min­is­ter: Sa­ma­jwadi Party pres­i­dent

Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav thinks the 2014 Gen­eral Elec­tions are his last shot at oc­cu­py­ing 7, Race Course Road. And he said as much at a rally in Aza­m­garh on Oc­to­ber 29, at the ITI Ground. When con­fronted with a crowd shout­ing the slo­gan ‘ Desh ka neta

kaisa ho, Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav jaisa ho’, he told them they were wrong. In­stead, he asked them a lead­ing ques­tion: Did they want him or any­one like him to be­come prime min­is­ter? The crowd then du­ti­fully chanted as told to: We want Mu­layam Singh to be­come PM. So desh ki

ma­j­boori hai? Mu­layam Singh za­roori hai?
