Lucknow: On the back drop of the power struggle within the Uttar Pradesh’s biggest political clan , Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday began his Samajawadi Vikash Ratha Yatra from Lucknow. Party Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav flagged-off the yatra.
However, the hi-tech rath suddenly broke down after barely covering a kilometer due to some technical issues, sources said.
The 37 foot long and 15 foot tall bus worth more than Rs. 50 lakh was specially modified with various features like working office, Wi-fi, tv, ac, cameras, bullet proof glass etc.
Notably, ahead of upcoming state assembly elections Akhilesh scheduled to tour the entire state on this rath.
