Samajwadi Party supremo on Sunday trained his guns on Congress once again, holding the grand old party responsible for the dismal performance of the SP in the recently-concluded Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. "It was my fault, I should have been the chief minister," Mulayam said.
Mulayam stressed the need for ramping up efforts to strengthen the Samajwadi Party, adding that Congress had left no stone unturned to "ruin" his life.
To a question on his brother Shivpal Yadav deciding to form a new front, he said efforts should be made to strengthen the Samajwadi Party.
Shivpal, who retained the Jaswantnagar Assembly seat during the recent elections, has said that a secular front would be formed if Akhilesh Yadav did not hand over the reins of the party back to his father Mulayam in three months.
On Shivpal Yadav's comment terming Ramgopal Yadav as "Shakuni", Mulayam said, "Whatever he (Shivpal) said is true.
Attempts were made to ensure his defeat and money was also spent for it".
The SP patron also attacked Prime Minister Narendar Modi and dubbed him as a "liar".
