Lucknow: Samajwadi party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav's younger son Prateek Yadav and wife Aparna Yadav met with new UP CM Yogi Adityanath this morning. The couple met with Adityanath at the 'VVIP Guest House' in Lucknow, where the Uttar Pradesh CM has been staying since he was sworn in on Sunday.
The SP-Congress combine was definitively routed by the BJP in the recently concluded Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. Aparna was roundly defeated by Congress-turned-BJP candidate Rita Bahuguna Joshi. with the air thick with such political rivalry, what explains this bonhomie, people are wondering.
Still, what has been known for a while now is that Aparna and Prateek Yadav are Narendra Modi fans. Last year, a selfie they took with the PM was widely circulated. This was after Modi attended a religious event at the Yadavs' residence.
