Trad­ing Blows

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav doesn’t usu­ally tick off his favourite min­is­ter Azam Khan, at least not in pub­lic. But on March 4, Mu­layam picked on Khan in the pres­ence of son Akhilesh and other Sa­ma­jwadi Party lead­ers at the chief min­is­ter’s of­fi­cial res­i­dence, 5 Kal­i­das Marg. Urg­ing the se­nior leader to take up more re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, Mu­layam told Khan: “Ab aap bhi sakriya ho jaiye (Now, you must be­come ac­tive).” To which, Khan re­sponded: “Ne­taji, maine baaki zindagi to aapke naam kar di hai. Ab to kabar mein hee jana baaki hai (I have ded­i­cated my whole life to you. And I will con­tinue to do so till I die).” Mu­layam, we hear, wasn’t amused.
