Akhilesh hits back at Modi for mocking ‘mahagathbandhan’


LUCKNOW: Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for mocking the proposed opposition alliance as “maha-milawat,” Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav warned Friday that the “concoction” of parties should not be taken lightly.
“This is such a concoction that you don’t know which party will get obliterated (yeh aisi maha-milawat hai ki kaun kahan mit jayega pata nahi),” Yadav said at a press conference here.
He was asked about Modi’s comment, terming the proposed ‘mahagathbandhan’, or the grand alliance, a maha-milawat (adulteration).
Modi had said the ‘maha-milawat’ will be rejected by the country’s “healthy democracy” in the coming Lok Sabha polls.
Yadav said his party’s alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will remain intact and the seat-sharing details will be declared at the right time.
On the prime minister’s “ulta chor chowkidar ko daantey” (thief accusing the guard) remark, Yadav said Modi should make clear for whom does this comment hold true. —PTI
