Lucknow, Oct 12: After more than a year, Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday shared public space, triggering speculation of a possible rapprochement.

Mulayam Singh joined his son, now the President of the Samajwadi Party, at a function to mark the 50th death anniversary of socialist ideologue Ram Manohar Lohia.

They chatted in between slogan shouting by party workers.

Mulayam Singh, who was literally ousted as party chief by Akhilesh Yadav on January 1, drove in a golf cart with the former Chief Minister at the Lohia park here and waved at excited party workers.

They together paid floral tributes at the statue of Lohia.

However, Mulayam Singh’s younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav, the estranged uncle of Akhilesh Yadav, was conspicuous by his absence.

Mulayam Singh has so far thrown his lot behind Shivpal Yadav in the ugly spat between the two and has rarely sided with the former UP Chief Minister.

Kolkata, Feb 18: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said that the $1.8 billion Punjab National Bank fraud was fuelled during demonetisation and demanded the unearthing of the “full truth” behind the scam.

“This is just a tip of the iceberg. This big bank fraud was fuelled at the time of #DeMonetisation. Big money-laundering happened during DeMo. Key bank officials were changed. Who are these people put in? There are more banks involved. The full truth must come out,” she tweeted.

Banerjee had earlier demanded a thorough investigation into the Punjab National Bank fraud and said she would not let the central government off the hook until the people’s money is secured.

Accusing the Centre of trying to take away the people’s money deposited in the banks with its Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance (FRDI) Bill, the Chief Minister said she had written “strong” letters to the Finance Ministry to demand withdrawal of the bill.

Bhartiya Janta Party leader and Madhya Pradesh minister, Yashodhara Raje Scindia warned people to vote them saying that they will not get benefits of Ujjawala Yojana if they would vote Congress.

The Madhya Pradesh minister for Commerce, Industries and Employment said that the scheme which was introduced by the BJP will not be provided if people vote for Congress.

“We have our government. If you don’t elect our candidate, then you will remain backward,” she added plainly.

“Aap agar panje ko vote doge toh hum panje ko kyun denge? Hum panje ke haath se kyun denge aapko chulha?

Nahi denge. Aaapko apni samajhdaari se aisi party ko vote dena hai jiski har cheez aapke gharon mein aa jaaye”

“Chulhe ki yojana, kyun nahi aayi aapke paas? Bharatiya Janata Party, kamal ki yojana hai. Aap panje mein vote doge, aapke paas aaegi nahi. Aap kamal ko doge, aapke paas aaegi. Seedhi baat hai”

The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana was launched in 2016 by the NDA particularly for the welfare of women in poor households.
