"The Congress party did not leave a single chance to ruin my life and Akhilesh formed an alliance with the same party for the 2017 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections", Mulayam said.

The SP-Congress alliance had faced a rout in the recent Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. "No leader of any party in India had made his son a chief minister during his lifetime, but I made Akhilesh the Chief Minister of UP", he said. "The Samajwadi Party in 2012 went to the Assembly elections on my face and the people had voted for me, yet I committed a grave error and made a decision to install Akhilesh as Chief Minister", said Mulayam in Mainpuri on Sunday. "And the only good governance choice was the BJP and that is why Yogi Adityanath is a proactive, positive chief minister working towards the vision of BJP in the state", she added. He is a selfish person and is concerned only for his narrow political interests. "This person made attempts to defeat Shivpal and even spent money for the goal". "Akhilesh should have denied this even if he was not convinced but I would have felt better", Mulayam said.

Angered over his brother, Ramgopal Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav backed Shivpal's comment of mentioning Ramgopal Yadav as "Shakuni". "Ram Gopal not only hatched a conspiracy for the defeat of Shivpal from Jaswantnagar he also spent huge sums of money for the purpose".

Penguins chase Holtby, beat Capitals to take 2-0 series lead
If the shot volume is the same from Game 1 then the Penguins will be screwed if Fleury does not continue to play at this level. While everything is butterflies and rainbows in the Penguins net, the Capitals may have a goalie controversy in theirs.

When asked if his brother Shivpal Yadav had chose to form a new front, Mr Yadav said that efforts should be made to strengthen the Samajwadi Party.

The statement of Aparna, wife of Mulayam Singh's younger son Prateek Yadav, coincides with the expulsion of some Shivpal Yadav proteges like Deepak Mishra by Akhilesh for alleged anti-party activities.

Earlier this week, Shivpal announced the launch of the "Samajwadi Secular Morcha" to be headed by Mulayam.
