Lucknow: Samajwadi Party leader Swami Prasad Maurya has mocked Mulayam Singh Yadav by awarding him the Padma Vibhushan. Mulayam’s greatness and contributions to the country were epitomized by the Padma Vibhushan award.
Maurya added that if the aim was to honor Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam, the Bharat Ratna, the country’s highest civilian honour, should have been given.
Party spokesperson IPS Singh also expressed a similar view. “Except for the Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian honour, no other honor would suit Mulayam Singh Yadav. An announcement to award the Bharat Ratna should be made soon’ – IP Singh tweeted.
Mulayam Singh Yadav, founder of the Samajwadi Party and three-time Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, died on October 10 last year. Mulayam was posthumously honored with Padma Vibhushan, the country’s second highest civilian honour.
