A day after rout, Mulayam Singh Yadav speaks out

Referring to the expressways constructed during his tenure, Akhilesh said: "May be people want bullet trains over expressways". The Samajwadi Party has been through many struggles. "There was a time when the party had won only 23 seats, but it did well in elections later and formed the government". I will review the party's performance and analyse the results.

According to sources, Mr Akhilesh Yadav is in no mood to get a seat vacated for himself and contest a by-election to enter the state assembly.Mr Akhilesh Yadav will prefer to remain in the public eye by charting a larger strategy with the Congress and continuing his crusade against the BJP. The Samajwadi Party which was founded on principles of anti-Congressism of socialist Rammanohar Lohia found it impossible to work with them., "How can you expect a SP worker, who in entire life has worked against Congress to one fine day stand with them?" sidelined SP leader Amar Singh told Mirror.

He further alleged that the Congress party failed to understand that Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav is the soul of the party.

The Uttar Pradesh chief minister had fought the elections on the development plank and ran a media blitzkrieg showcasing his government's achievements, which included promises of free laptops and smart phones. However he will have to take responsibility for party's defeat also.
