“I har­bour no am­bi­tions of be­com­ing the prime min­is­ter of the coun­try... Peo­ple who stay away from Delhi are hap­pier.”

AKHILESH YA­DAV, speak­ing at an event in Luc­know, down­played his new­found po­lit­i­cal cred­i­bil­ity among the chat­ter­ing classes. Hav­ing proved his bona fides by out­smart­ing the Sa­ma­jwadi Party’s wily old guard and tak­ing con­trol, it is his coat-tails on which a grate­ful Congress is rid­ing. Should the SP and Congress win in UP, would Akhilesh be­come a na­tional fig­ure? He is too canny to say.
