Akhilesh will celebrate angry Muslim MLAs through dinner diplomacy!

Lucknow. Presidential election brings winds of change in the politics of Uttar Pradesh (UP). The presidential elections held after the 2017 UP assembly elections changed the politics of the state in such a way that the politics of the state reached a different point. Now once again there is a ruckus in the state’s main opposition party Samajwadi Party (SP) regarding the presidential elections. There has been a ruckus in the SP after Pragatisheel Samajwadi (PSP) President Shivpal Singh Yadav exposed an old episode of joint opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha calling Mulayam Singh Yadav an agent of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI in the presidential election. Due to which all the supporters of SP founder Mulayam Singh Yadav are not in favor of voting for Yashwant Sinha. Now Akhilesh Yadav has decided to resort to dinner diplomacy to persuade these angry Muslim MLAs.

Under this dinner diplomacy, a dinner party has been organized for the party MLAs on Sunday night at the house of Mohd Tahir, the party MLA from Sultanpur’s Isauli assembly seat. All the 111 MLAs of the party have been asked to attend this dinner party. MLA Tahir says that during this party, information will be given to the legislators about the voting for the presidential election. During this, the rules of voting will also be told. SP President Akhilesh Yadav will also reach the dinner party and he will also address the party MLAs. On the other hand, on the condition of anonymity, many Muslim MLAs of SP say that supporting the opposition candidate Yashwant Sinha, who called the party’s founder Mulayam Singh Yadav as an agent of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI, is knocking their conscience. These Muslim MLAs will speak their mind to Akhilesh Yadav. Even after this, if Akhilesh Yadav asked to vote for Yashwant Sinha, who called the SP founder an ISI agent, then he would listen to his conscience and vote against Yashwant Sinha. Many Hindu MLAs of SP who won from West UP are also not in favor of voting for Yashwant Sinha. They say that after what Shivpal Singh has disclosed, it is not right to vote in his favor because till now Yashwant Sinha has not apologized for his statement.

It is noteworthy that UP Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya had tweeted a statement published in Yashwant Sinha’s newspaper, describing Mulayam Singh Yadav as an agent of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI. Taking Yashwant Sinha seriously, Shivpal Singh Yadav wrote a letter to SP chief Akhilesh Yadav. In this letter, Shivpal wrote that the person (Yashwant Sinha) who once called Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) an ISI agent, today only SP is supporting him for the post of President. Please reconsider your decision. After this letter of Shivpal, there was a ruckus in the SP. And already angry with Akhilesh Yadav’s behavior, the Muslim MLAs indicated to the senior leaders of the party to oppose Yashwant Sinha. Only after this, Akhilesh has taken the initiative of Dinner Diplomacy to persuade the angry MLAs. Now it has to be seen how he convinces the angry MLAs. And all the angry MLAs will listen to him and vote for Yashwant Sinha or oppose him.
