Mulayam meets Ajit Singh

May 29, 2003 20:38 IST

Just hours after meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday met Rashtriya Loktantrik Dal chief Ajit Singh, signalling a realignment of forces in Uttar Pradesh.

Mulayam, who was accompanied by his trusted aide Amar Singh, is understood to have discussed with Ajit Singh a plan to topple the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government in UP.

On Wednesday, five RLD ministers had quit the Mayawati government.

It's clear now that Ajit Singh, who resigned on May 23 from the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre ahead of a reshuffle, has chosen Uttar Pradesh to extract his revenge on the BJP.

For Mulayam Singh Yadav, whose attempts to topple Mayawati have failed so far, it's a godsend.
The RLD has convened a meeting of its 14-member RLD legislative party in Lucknow on Friday to decide whether to continue its support to the Mayawati government.
