Although there has not been much information about the issues discussed between the three leaders, the timing of the meeting becomes significant as the most awaited Uttar Pradesh assembly elections are approaching next year.
Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav told NDTV: “Mulayam Singh-ji had been unwell. Lalu Yadav visited to enquire about his health. It is natural that when two senior politicians of the country meet, politics will be discussed.”
