It was when Azam spoke to Mulayam at latter's residence and convinced him to thrash out their differences.. Taking his consent, he drove down to UP CM's residence to take him along to Vikaramaditya Marg residence of Mulayam where both had heart-to-heart talk.
In fact, Akhilesh , during his meeting with the legislators, went emotional and said he was part of Mulayam and would give him a gift of the victory in assembly polls. Similar emotions were vented by Mulayam during his talks with Azam, the insiders told 'www.newstrack.com'. Mulayam had expelled Akhilesh and Ram Gopal Yadav from the party for six years on Friday.
