Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi is a good human being and they can forge a “friendship” if he spends more time in the state.

“Rahulji bahut acche insan hain, bahut acche ladke hain. UP me jyada rahenge to hamari bhi dosti unse hogi…Do acche log mil jaye to kya kharab baat hai? (Rahul is a good human being and a good boy. If he spends more time in UP, we can also have friendship with him…If two good human beings meet, what’s wrong in that),” he said.

Akhilesh, however, refused to comment on the possible alliance between Congress and the Samajwadi Party for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
