Patna: Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Monday offered support and friendly advice to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. Ahead of the upcoming UP elections, the Bihar CM has suggested liquor prohibition as the mantra for success.
UP CM Akhilesh Yadav was recently involved in a family feud after the Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav replaced him as the state chief with younger brother Shivpal Yadav.
Nitish Kumar said Akhilesh Yadav is the face of the youth and he needs to take some risks to gain something in politics referring to the enforcement of prohibition.
Nitish Kumar also said if the 44-year-old UP Chief Minister would enforce the prohibition law, it would get him overwhelming support from women voters which would increase the total number of votes in his kitty.
“Mulayam Singh and his party has been cursed by someone for ditching us last year,” CM Nitish Kumar said referring to the walk out of Samajwadi Party (SP) from the Grand-Alliance (mahagadhbandhan). Political experts believe that if SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav would not have walked out of the Grand-Alliance he would have been the face of the anti-Modi campaign in the country.
