Samajwadi Party Founder Mulayam Singh Yadav Hospitalised


Lucknow: Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav on Friday was admitted to the PGI hospital in Uttar Pradesh’s Luckow following ill health.

The doctors are currently examing him. According to the PGI doctors, he will be discharged within a few hours. The doctors attending him added that there are no major problems with the SP leader.

The doctors added that Yadav had come for a routine checkup and so he was admitted. During the routine checkup when he complained of gastro and neurological problems, he was admitted, added the doctors.

In 1995, Samajwadi Party workers had allegedly attacked a state guest house where Mayawati was camping with her supporters. The immediate provocation was Mayawati’s decision to withdraw from the government and join hands with the BJP. Ever since then the two had become sworn enemies. The SP patriarch is contesting from Mainpuri and Mayawati campaigning for him is proof that they have buried their hatchet, at least for now. Mulayam had not attended the other SP-BSP joint rallies in Deoband, Badaun and Agra because of health issues.

The Samajwadi Party patriarch is contesting from his bastion Mainpuri in this Lok Sabha elections. He had filed his nomination papers from the constituency last month. As per the affidavit, the SP patriarch has declared a total property, both movable and immovable, worth Rs 16.52 crore. This is Rs 3.20 crore less than the assets declared by him in an affidavit ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
