At Mainpuri rally, Mulayam Singh Yadav says he respects Mayawati

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav on Friday shared the dais at historic Mahagathbandhan rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Mainpuri after 24 years. During the rally, the foe-turned-friends showered praises upon each other with Mulayam urging his supporters to have respect for Mayawati. The BSP chief also mentioned the infamous "guest house episode" in 1995 when she was attacked by SP workers. The incident created animosity between Mayawati and Mulayam and with today’s rally, the decades-old enmity ended.
