Will Akhilesh pick Maya over his dad for PM’s post: Yogi

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Aday af­ter the his­toric Akhilesh-Mayawati al­liance, UP CM Yogi Adityanath tried to drive a wedge be­tween SP and BSP on Sun­day by re­call­ing their tu­mul­tuous past and point­ing at in­her­ent con­tra­dic­tions be­tween the two par­ties. Speak­ing at an event here, Yogi asked Akhilesh if he chose Mayawati over his fa­ther and SP pa­tri­arch Mu­layam Singh Ya­dav for the PM’s post. “In the last LS polls, Akhilesh wanted his fa­ther to be the PM. Who is he pro­ject­ing this time as PM, Mu­layam or Mayawati?” Yogi asked. “It’s not clear if Mu­layamji would even get an SP ticket to con­test this time. Any­way, Mu­layam’s brother Shiv­pal Ya­dav wants to field him,” he said, high­light­ing the rift in the Ya­dav fam­ily.
