Mulayam praises Atal Bihari Vajpayee, calls him a 'good PM'

Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav praised Atal Bihari Vajpayee and termed him as 'good prime minister'.

"Atalji acche pradhanmantri the. Lekin unki hi party ke log kaam karne nahi dete the (Atalji was a good PM, but his own party men did not let him work)", Yadav said while addressing party workers at SP headquarter in Lucknow.

On the issue of women's reservation, Yadav said, "We are not against it. It should be at party level. Parties should give 15-20 per cent reservation to women (while distributing tickets). If you don't give ticket, your registration would be cancelled".

Yadav said he wanted to thank former PM Vajpayee, who had sought his views on the issue.

He also said that some people in BJP who did not like him did not let the BJP veteran take this issue in hand.
