Mulayam gives Akhilesh full marks on completing 100 days

Lucknow, June 22 (IANS) Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Friday gave full marks to the Uttar Pradesh state government headed by his son, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, on the eve of completing 100 days in office.

"I am very happy with the way things are shaping up and will give a 100 on 100 to the government," said Mulayam.

He, however, cautioned that he would be doing a threadbare review of the government's performance when it is six months into office. "It is too early as of now. After six months, I will myself review the functioning of the government," he said.

Adding that his party was working hard for the Lok Sabha 2014 polls, Mulayam said the party's manifesto was of prime importance and the government should implement it as soon as possible. "The people have given us not only a mandate but full faith. We should live up to it," Yadav further said.

He said the national executive meeting of the Samajwadi Party would be held in Kolkata after the July presidential election.

Meanwhile, the opposition Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) came down heavily on the 100-day-old Akhilesh Yadav government and alleged that it was an "all-round failure".

"The state is in the grip of lawlessness, power chaos and lack of governance," said BSP state president Swamy Prasad Maurya. Adding that this government was out to squander the mandate of the people, Maurya said he was happy that the people of the state had already started regretting voting for the SP.

Akhilesh Yadav's government completes 100 days in office Saturday.
