“I may not be with CM Akhilesh, but I will always be with Mulayam Singh Yadav’s son Akhilesh. The father of the SP and the Chief Minister are the same, and God stands as a testimony that whenever I spoke to Netaji, it was in favour of Akhilesh, Netaji also knows this truth,” Singh told ANI, while responding to Akhilesh’s allegations.

“When I was struggling for life and undergoing a dialysis, Netaji had come to meet me and he said there was a discussion on the issue of state president and when Akhilesh Yadav replaced Shivpal Yadav as the UP SP president, even then I was blamed for it,” said Singh.

“When his (Akhilesh’s) family was opposing his marriage, I was the only who stood by him, but today I am hurt by his words. There is no photo of his wedding, where this ‘dalal’ is not there,” emotional Singh responded to the allegation of “dalal”
