Why Mulayam as the unhappy patriarch suits SP

However, a quick fix is far from possible. Akhilesh may be the CM but his government is riven by many pulls and pressures. There is Mulayam himself, as a patriarch who is above everyone. Then there is Ramgopal Yadav, the party general secretary, who is another power centre, apart from smaller players. Add to this a mindset which believes that populism is a substitute for governance.
