VIP Chief Mukesh Sahni needs no hasty introduction as a politician. His value was evaluated by Tejashwi Yadav when he offered him to come to his side. He needed him for a political purpose which was rejected by him for he was expected to get entry into the new cabinet of Nitish government. But this gross rejection by wise political leader ended the unnecessary guess in every pointed direction.
Whatever it may be, politics opens up new opportunities and that’s why there remains a possibility of odds. Is it not far less than an unexpected instant that a politician like Mukesh Sahni has badly licked defeat at both the times of his electoral fight in the state. On one occasion, he lost the electoral fight by Mehboob Ali Qaiser and secondly, his son Yusuf Salahuddin. First, he fought on the MGB ticket for the Lok Sabha seat which he lost and later, he could not win the assembly seat as NDA contestant from Simri Bakhtiyar constituency.
However, Sahni rejected an offer by Laloo Yadav’s son. A plum. It appeared that Sahni had a credit of dangling between the father and the son for his political fame or fate.
The very ancient proverb like father, like daughter, has looked to be finding significant space in this example amply. This idiom in English prevails in slightly varying versions since the 1300s, sometimes appearing with a counterpart, like mother, like daughter. Thomas Draxe had it in Bibliotheca (1616): “Like father, like son; like mother, like daughter.”
