Once again, proving media reports wrong, Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday announced that he had no plans to launch a party in Uttar Pradesh, at least for now. "I am not forming a new party as of now", he told reporters during a press conference.

He, however, targeted Uttar Pradesh government for law and order situation in the state. "Girls studying at Banaras Hindu University (BHU) are not safe, rule of law no longer prevails in Uttar Pradesh," he said, directly attacking Yogi Aditynath government in the state over the recent row at BHU.

 

Targeting Narendra Modi government at the Centre, Mulayam alleged that price-rise has inflicted people at large. "None of the promises made by the government have been fulfilled during the last three years and Petrol-diesel prices have skyrocketed," Mulayam Singh Yadav alleged. 

 

Talking about Akhilesh Yadav he said: He is my son so my blessings are with him but I don't agree with his decisions.

Earlier, before the press conference, it was expected that Mulayam Singh Yadav will announce a new outfit on Monday along with virtually defunct Lok Dal, and retain the 'Samajwadi' tag in its name. This was largely speculated, when Mulayam and his brother-aide Shivpal Yadav stayed away from a state convention of the party on Saturday-- which they had founded 25 years ago -- saying they were not invited.

"Mulayam will hold a press conference at the Lohia Trust office here on Monday to announce a new party with Lok Dal," Lok Dal president Sunil Singh had told PTI. He had said the word 'Samajwadi' (socialist) will be retained in the name of the new party.
