Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav lost his cool on a media person duringa meeting on Tuesday after he asked questions on his uncle Shivpal Yadav's given statement about handing over the party chief post to his father Mulayam Singh Yadav.
A television reporter wearing a saffron shirt asked about Shivpal's statement, which annoyed former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav.
An infuriated Akhilesh said, "He (the reporter) is new here. His color is also saffron... I want to tell him and other journalists to fix any day in May, and I will answer all questions. But after that you should not ask any question about my family... let us do politics.If the country is ruined, you (the reporter) will also not be there. The country is being ruined because of people like you.
The SP leader had called the press conference at 1 PM but he postponed the conference for tomorrow after the scrimmage.
According to the reports, one of Akhilesh Yadav's security guard also misbehaved with a senior journalist at the party office.
