Will It Take A Wedding For Lalu And Mulayam To Ally
Before they come together in a “Janata Parivar”, politicians Mulayam Singh Yadav and Lalu Yadav may end up in a different alliance – one involving a wedding. Lalu Yadav’s youngest daughter Raj Lakshmi is reportedly marrying the SP chief’s grand-nephew Tej Pratap Singh Yadav.
WILL IT TAKE A WEDDING FOR LALU AND MULAYAM TO ALLY
Tej Pratap debuted in May General polls and won the Mainpuri parliamentary constituency vacated by his uncle Mulayam Singh. Reports suggest an engagement ceremony in December and a wedding in February.
A lot is being read into the match weeks after Lalu, the chief of RLD, attended a lunch meet at Mulayam’s Delhi residence, along with several other regional opposition parties with common roots in the erstwhile Janata Party. After the meet, the leaders hinted that the “Janata parivar” could come together to form a party in the future and pledged to operate as one bloc in Parliament. The JD(U) is also likely to be a member of this alliance.
The perceived surge of support for the BJP and PM Narendra Modi after a series of poll victories appears to have pushed the fierce rivals and former CM’s of politically vital states closer against a common enemy.
