Mulayam has grown old: Rabri Devi, Tariq Anwar


Embarrassed over Mulayam singh yadav wishing a second term for Prime Minister Narender modi, the opposition RJD-Congress combine in Bihar on Thursday sought to make light of his comment saying the samajwadi party patriarch had grown old and was no longer sufficiently mindful of his own utterances.Former Chief Minister Rabri Devi and ex-Union minister Tariq Anwar made statements to the effect when their reactions were sought to Yadav’s remarks during his speech Wednesday inside the Lok Sabha.

Incidentally, the wife of party supremo Lalu Prasad shares filial ties with the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, whose grandnephew Tej Pratap Singh Yadav is married to her daughter Rajlaxmi. When the query was posed before Tariq Anwar in his Lok Sabha constituency of Katihar, the urbane former Bihar Congress president replied with the remark umr ka takaza hai (it is because of age).

Notably, Anwar who was then with the NCP had formed an alliance with the SP in the 2015 assembly polls when both parties refused to become a part of the Mahagathbandhan comprising RJD, Chief Minister Nitish Kumars RJD and Congress which went on to win the elections with a huge majority.
