Patna: A day after Samajwadi Party stalwart Mulayam Singh Yadav backed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the prime ministerial candidate in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha election, former Bihar Chief Minister Rabri Devi, on Thursday, said Yadav's statements have no relevance.
When asked to comment on Mulayamâs remark on PM Modi, RJD leader Rabri Devi said, " He has become old and his memory is failing. What he says has no relevance".
Speaking on the last day of the 16th Lok Sabha, Mulayam Singh Yadav, an MP from Azamgarh district, on Wednesday, said, âI congratulate theÂ Prime MinisterÂ because he has tried to take everybody along. I want to say that all (Lok Sabha) members must win and come again andÂ Narendra ModiÂ should become theÂ Prime MinisterÂ again.â
Showing his disagreement over Mulayamâs remark, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said: "I disagree with him. ButÂ Mulayam Singh YadavÂ has a role in politics and I respect his opinion."
