Mulayam courts Kejri to join Janata darbar!

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday said that he would like to appeal to Aam Aadmi Party chief, Arvind Kejriwal, to join grand alliance against the BJP. In an effort to consolidate a non-BJP and non-Congress front, the former defence minister is leading an outfit of other regional parties.

Recently Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Rajesh Ranjan, better known as Pappu Yadav had also said that Kejriwal must join the alliance as he is a great leader and have influence among youth to mobilise against the saffron party. AAP MP Bhagwant Mann had thanked Pappu Yadav for referring Kejriwal as great leader.

Mulayam Singh Yadav is in the forefront of consolidation of opposition forces, bringing six constituents of the erstwhile ‘Janata Parivar’ under the banner of one party. At Yadav’s residence in the Capital recently, leaders of parties - Janata Dal (United), Janata Dal (Secular), Samajwadi Party, Indian National Lok Dal and late prime minister Chandrashekhar’s Samajwadi Janata Party - met where the SP chief was chosen to lay the ground for the merger of all Janata Pariwar parties, in addition to the six present.

The new conglomerate is most likely to emerge before the end of the ongoing winter session of Parliament. The session ends on December 23 and the outfit in making has called for a protest sit-in on December 22 against government’s “failure” to bring back black money stashed abroad, its alleged U-turn on farmers’ issue and rising unemployment.
