New Delhi:

Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday regretted his decision to make Akhilesh Yadav Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Addressing people at Mainpuri, Mulayam said that if he would have assumed position of CM instead of Akhilesh, then the situation would have been better.

SP patriarch said that after making Akhilesh CM, the party has now been reduced to 47 seats in comparison to 224 seats in the earlier election.

Criticising the party’s decision to form alliance with Congress, Mulayam said that Congress made all kinds of efforts to destroy him by lodging many cases against him. Mulayam said that Muslims are not going to vote for Congress as the mosque was demolished during Congress’ regime.
