Mulayam's Chooti Bahu Aparana visits UP CM Yogi Adityanath
Luckow : Newly-anointed UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath had some unexpected guest on Friday. The Chooti Bahu rani of SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav, Aparana Yadav with her husband Prateek Yadav visited Yogi Adityanath for about 20 minutes.
