LUCKNOW, Oct 24: Samajwadi party Supremo Mulayam Said said he was saddened by the rift within the Samajwadi Party as he had worked hard, facing lathi blows and jail time in the past, to bring the party to its present level.
In a reference to son Akhilesh, Mulayam said “If you can’t face criticism, you can’t be a leader.”
Mulayam is siding with his brother Shivpal and praised the party state president and said “I will never forget the work Shivpal has done for me and Samajwadi Party. You get some power and it goes to your head. Shivpal Yadav is leader of the masses."
Mulayam even praised Amar Singh.
