LUCKNOW: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Friday likened Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav to Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

Addressing a Nishad Kashyap and Bind communities conference in Lucknow, the Chief Minister, without taking any name, said that he is an opportunist.

“Jo Apne Baap Aur Apne Chacha Ka Nahi Hua, Wo Aapko Apne Saath Jodne ki Baat Karta Hai… Itihas Mein Ek Paatra Aate Hain, Kaise Unhone Apne Baap Ko Qaid Karke Rakh Diya Tha. Isi Liye koi Musalman Apne Putra Ka Naam Aurangzeb Nahi Rakhta. Aur Mujhe Lagta Hai Ki Kuch Aisa Hi Samajwadi Party Ke Saath Jud Gaya Hai… Itihas Apne Aap ko Dohrata hai Aur Waise hi Dohrane ka Karya ho Raha hai (One who could not take his father and uncle along claims that he will take you along… a character in history jailed his father. This is why no Muslim names his son Aurangzeb. I think the same is the case with SP. History repeats itself and that is what is happening),” said Adityanath.

The attack on the Samajwadi Party president came a day after Akhilesh accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of igniting caste politics and said that the monk-turned-CM will not remain on the post after 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
