While questions on the majority of the topics were cleared without much difficulty, there was one question that drew opposite reactions from Rahul and Akhilesh.

This question was with regards to political rival Mayawati, with whom Congress seemed open to coalition while SP couldn’t even bring them self to consider it.

While there is nothing new or surprising about Akhilesh’s reaction about Mayawati, it was what he said that seems to have gotten Twitterati’s furious.

In his address, Akhilesh poked fun of Mayawati’s weight and even compared her to an elephant.

“How could we have given her (Mayawati) space (in the alliance)? She takes up so much space. Even her party symbol is an elephant”.

While the press conference continued from there on, Twitter started flooding with tweets of outrage, with many expressing shock and outrage about Akhilesh’s comments.

But even as Twitterati expressed shock over his remark, in the political outfield, no one even batted an eyelid.

There has been absolutely no reaction from Rahul, who was sitting beside him and saying, “his respect” for Mayawati is still intact, or their political rivals BJP who only focused on SP-Congress’s “unbalanced” alliance.
