Lucknow: Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Friday alleged that he was stranded in Delhi as his helicopter was not allowed to fly to UP’s Muzaffarnagar for an election programme.

In a tweet in Hindi, the SP president posted a picture with the helicopter in the background and said no reason was given for it.

Later in another tweet, Akhilesh said he is ready to take a flight.

Akhilesh Yadav and RLD chief Jayant Chaudhary are scheduled to address a joint press conference in Muzaffarnagar.

“My helicopter is still detained in Delhi without assigning any reason and not being allowed to go to Muzaffarnagar, whereas a top BJP leader has just flown from here. This is a desperate conspiracy of the losing BJP. People are understanding everything,” he said in his earlier tweet.
