Heed A Patriarch’s Advice

Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav is a relieved man, vindicated that his advice to son Akhilesh against any mahagathbandhan with ‘bua’ Mayawati would backfire. The SP won just five seats and, like Netaji had predicted, Mayawati dumped his son soon after increasing her tally from zero in the previous Lok Sabha to 10 this time. She blamed the partner party for the mahagathbandhan’s failure. As for Mulayam—the 79-year-old is in the Lok Sabha for a seventh term from Mainpuri—he has been devastatingly prophetic before as well. In 2017, he told Akhilesh to stay away from Rahul Gandhi’s Congress during the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls. The drubbings could open the door for Mulayam to reclaim control of his party.
