AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh punctured the secular balloon of Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, who never tires of boasting about his commitment to secularism. Mulayam Singh Yadav was Minister in the State Government in Uttar Pradesh along with Kalyan Singh in 1977. He became Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister for the first time in 1989, with the help of the BJP. He became UP Chief Minister in 2003, after striking a deal with the BJP, when he agreed to retain Kesrinath Tripathi of BJP as UP Assembly Speaker. Mulayam Singh had a secret meeting with the RSS Chief during Mhow riots in UP. He flew into Delhi by a special aircraft to attend the memorial meeting for senior RSS leader Bhaurao Deoras, where he shared platform with RSS Chief and senior VHP leaders.
