Mulayam's son Prateek Yadav retorts after Lamborghini row
Lucknow: Prateek Yadav, the second son of Samajwadi Party founder Mulayam Singh Yadav, on Thursday questioned the prevailing controversy over the Rs 5 crore Lamborghini Huracan, which he owns.
"I bought this car on loan. I have all the papers to prove this. I also pay Income tax, so why this controversy," Prateek Yadav said.
"I own a real estate business and a chain of gyms. There would not have any controversy if I had invested Rs 5 crore in a property," he further said.
Denying interest in politics, he expressed confidence of his wife Aparna Yadav's victory in the UP elections.
"Aparna is surely going to win the elections from Lucknow Cantt. She has worked really hard to develop the area," Prateek Yadav said.
Speaking over the election prospects of the pre-poll alliance between SP and Congress, Mulayam's son said, "I think the alliance manage to win more than 250 seats and can even go up to 300."
Prateek also clarified that he had no interest in politics and just wanted to focus on his business. The controversy over the Lamborghini erupted after Prateek himself went live on Facebook driving his precious car at a very high speed.
Prateek is married to Aparna Yadav with whom he also has a three-year-old daughter. He took his graduation degree from the University of Leeds.
It may be mentioned that Aparna in her affidavit has claimed that the Lamborghini is owned by her husband for which he took a loan worth Rs 4.5 crore from the Union Bank of India, Gomti Nagar.
