Mulayam best suited for PM`s post: SP leader
Kanpur: Amid Modi-for-PM chant in BJP, a senior Samajwadi Party leader on Sunday proposed the name of party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for the top post.
"Everybody is looking forward to Mulayam Singh Yadav, a leader of the farmers, as the Prime Ministerial candidate," SP general secretary Ram Asrey Kushwaha said here.
"Congress is projecting Rahul (Gandhi) as its PM candidate while BJP is pushing the name of Modi... I want to ask are they farmers?" he said.
Kushwaha said India would progress only when a farmer becomes the Prime Minister.
"These two (Gandhi and Modi) cannot be compared with Mulayam Singh... If there was any farmer leader in this country, it was Chaudhary Charan Singh and after him it is Mulayam Singh," the SP leader said.
