Tumbling bikers, 9 bullet holes: How Mulayam Singh Yadav was attacked in 1984

On Wednesday, Modi reminded Akhilesh Yadav of an attempt to kill his father 33 years ago, allegedly at the behest of the Congress. The Congress was then in power in UP, and Mulayam, a leader of Charan Singh’s Bharatiya Lok Dal, was Leader of Opposition in the Vidhan Parishad. This is how Jansatta, Hindi daily of The Indian Express Group, reported the incident in its edition of March 8, 1984.
