New Delhi: As the Budget session of parliament started on Monday, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister designate Akhilesh Yadav along with his father Mulayam Singh Yadav reached the historical Central Hall of Parliament with everyone’s gaze pouring at them. 

Akhilesh Yadav went on to seek blessings of several senior leaders and parliamentarians where everyone responded positively. Yadav even touched Varanasi MP and senior BJP leaders Murli Manohar Joshi’s feet.

Seeing Akhilesh with oozing confidence, certain Congress and BJP leaders seemed uncomfortable whereas others greeted him enthusiastically.  

Even during the President’s speech which was her last before she completes her term in July, members of the house, people from the media gallery were looking at Akhilesh Yadav. However, several gazing eyes failed to spot the Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi as he was absent from the day’s proceedings.
