Mainpuri (Uttar Pradesh): Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav is no longer a hero for the young in Mainpuri, the constituency which sent him to parliament thrice.
Naziya Parveen, 25, a primary school teacher in Bhongaon, told IANS: "Mulayam is definitely not a hero for us."
Ironically, Yadav's falling reputation among the young stems from acts aimed at helping them.
In 1991, the state's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had pushed through a law that made cheating a non-bailable offence.
