Nearly ready: a temple for Mulayam Singh Yadav

Lucknow: For Samajwadi Party workers in Aligarh, politics is their religion and Mulayam Singh Yadav is the God. And the latest manifestation of sycophancy will be a temple dedicated to the Samajwadi Party chief.

Like his arch political rival Mayawati, Mulayam too will be carved in stone, but his temple would be a pale imitation of the BSP chief’s larger than life memorials worth thousands of crores.

Measuring 10X12 feet, the temple will have a five feet tall statue of the Samajwadi Party president and cost a little over Rs. 10 lakh.

Rajesh Saini, a member of the party’s Aligarh unit, says “We have laid the foundation stone for the temple on Mulayam’s birthday and the temple would be ready in a month’s time.”

This is not the first time that the former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh has played God. In February 2006, a junior minister in his government – Dayaram Prajapati – was blessed with a Cabinet berth by the Samajwadi Party chief after he prayed like a devotee.

However, Mulayam Singh had staunchly criticised the statues built by Mayawati during her tenure as the chief minister. “Statues of the living were not meant to be installed and garlanded,” he had said, vowing to destroy them.

But even after the Samajwadi Party came to power in Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati’s statues stand tall. In fact, earlier this year, Mulayam’s son Akhilesh Yadav hurriedly replaced a broken statue of the BSP chief within hours after it was vandalised.
