Playing It Safe, Mr Akhilesh Yadav?

As the famous quote goes “mockery is the best form of flattery”, Akhilesh Yadav, who is unfolding all the aces he has got, from taking over to the party post on making an alliance with Congress. One can’t make any assumptions as for how many more aces he has got with him. In the biggest of the move, Akhilesh Yadav played safe, and at the same time, ignored all the possible trolls that may be shifted on to him.

Akhilesh Yadav, in the promotion poster of his Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, thought of letting go off Rahul Gandhi. Instead, the party thought of a better face, and most importantly, more mature than Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Vadra. Maybe, the party thought Rahul Gandhi’s immature talk, always attracting public trolls with his speeches, and never ending “Pappu jokes” on his credit. Might be the reason why Samajwadi Party’s new chief, Akhilesh Yadav, thought to go with Priyanka Vadra’s face to show their alliance with Congress in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

The inclusion of Priyanka Vadra face in party’s poster is also hinting her political debut with S.P alliance in the state. But letting go off Rahul Gandhi face is a master stroke that Akhilesh Yadav had played so far, and with the same stroke, he had also managed to avoid all the trolls that would target his party with Rahul Gandhi’s image.
