It is in 1992, after the demolition of the disputed structure in Ayodhya, the then CK Kalyan Singh resigned, the President’s rule was imposed in UP and the election dates were announced six months later, Kalyan Singh was sure that his victory in the election was certain. But then Mulayam Singh played such a trick that Kalyan Singh got upset. With the help of Kanshi Ram, Mulayam Singh formed the government and removed Kalyan Singh from the CM’s chair. This was the period when Mulayam Singh and Kalyan Singh used to be bitter opponents of each other in politics, but the more bitterness between the two in politics, their friendship was as strong. So sure that even today there is an example for politicians, so let’s go into history a little.
Rise of two young faces of politics
In 1967, two young faces emerged in politics, one of them was Mulayam Singh whose hometown was Mainpuri and the other was Kalyan Singh who was from the neighboring district Etah. In 1967, Kalyan Singh was elected MLA for the first time from Jana Sangh and in the same year Mulayam Singh also started his political journey. Exactly 10 years later, both became part of the same cabinet. It was in 1977 when the Janata Party government was formed in UP. In this government, Mulayam Singh was made the Minister of Animal Husbandry and Kalyan Singh was given the Ministry of Health.
One socialist leader, another’s nationalist image
Mulayam Singh Yadav, who became CM from Lok Dal in 1989, was a socialist leader and Kalyan Singh’s image was that of a nationalist leader, after snatching the chair from Kalyan Singh in 1992, both were considered to be fierce opponents of each other in politics. But behind the scenes, their friendship never came under fire, in 1999, when Kalyan Singh suddenly arrived at Akhilesh Yadav’s wedding, political experts were also taken by surprise.
…when welfare-soft came together in politics
Around 2002, Kalyan Singh started disillusioning with the BJP. In such a situation, it was believed that Kalyan Singh would take the membership of the Samajwadi Party. Although this did not happen, Kalyan Singh announced his own party and named it Rashtriya Kranti Party, although politically the party could not make its supremacy and before the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, he formed an alliance with Mulayam Singh Yadav.
It’s friendship, not alliance.
With Mulayam Singh joining hands with Kalyan Singh, he resolved to defeat the BJP. Kalyan Singh told the forums many times that this friendship is enough to destroy the BJP. Mulayam Singh also never considered it an alliance, instead he kept calling it friendship every time.
Kalyan wore a red cap…
Kalyan Singh never joined the SP, but his son Rajveer and close friend Kusuma Rai joined the SP, a moment came in 2009 when Mulayam Singh and Kalyan Singh were seen sharing the stage together at the GIC Ground in Agra. Returns. In that meeting, Mulayam Singh wore a red cap to Kalyan Singh. But people did not understand this friendship and the SP suffered a lot in that election. Mulayam Singh was hurt by this, he apologized to the party leaders and the public and said that shaking hands with Kalyan Singh was his biggest mistake.
