Samajwadi party is all set for the celebrations for Mulayam Singh Yadav’s 79th birthday who is the founder of the party. Mulayam is likely to share stage with his son and party president Akhilesh Yadav at the SP headquarters, where preparations for the bash started on Tuesday. Mulayam is likely to address the workers at the event.Groomed by leaders such as Ram Manohar Lohia and Raj Narain, Yadav was first elected as a Member of the Legislative Assembly in Legislative Assembly of Uttar Pradesh in 1967. Yadav served eight terms there. He first became a state minister in 1977. Later, in 1980, he became the president of the Lok Dal (People’s Party) in Uttar Pradesh which became a part of the Janata Dal (People’s Party) afterwards.In 1992, Yadav founded his own Samajwadi Party (Socialist Party). In 1993, he allied with the Bahujan Samaj Party for the elections to Uttar Pradesh assembly due to be held in November 1993. The alliance between Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party prevented the return of BJP to power in the state.Last year, Mulayam’s birthday was not celebrated because of the internal feud in SP. Akhilesh, however, inaugurated the Lucknow-Agra Expressway on November 21 the eve of his father’s birthday with party leaders describing the feat as a gift to his father.
