Lucknow: Samajwadi supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav rebuked his son and Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh publicly at an event on Tuesday.
As per reports on Wednesday, Mulayam was speaking at an event and many senior SP leaders and Akhilesh were sitting on the stage.
Suddenly Mulayam asked his son about the help extended by the Centre for floods in UP.
At that time Akhilesh was talking to someone and apparently did not hear the SP chief's question.
This made Mulayam lose his cool and he publicly reprimanded Akhilesh.
This is not the first time that Mulayam has publicly scolded his son.
The UP CM was left red-faced in March last year when his father chose a public platform to reprimand him.
In a perform-or-perish style warning, the senior Yadav had told his son at a function that it was high time he proved his worth.
"Ai Mukhyamantri suno (listen chief minister)," he had told a visibly embarrassed Akhilesh, adding that he was surrounded by self-seeking bureaucrats and 'chaploos' (sycophants), as per IANS.
He had warned the UP CM that anyone who did not pay heed to well wishers always got into trouble.
