Neelam Katara unhappy about DP Yadav sharing dais with Amit Shah

New Delhi, Oct 01 (ANI): Nitish Katara's mother Neelam Katara on Wednesday expressed her anguish over DP Yadav sharing the stage with BJP Chief Amit Shah, saying that such steps don't augur well for the common man. She said that this sets up a doubtful situation on whether 'achche din' are for people like DP Yadav or the common people of India. DP Yadav recently shared stage with Amit Shah in a couple of rallies in Haryana where the latter was campaigning for party candidates ahead of the Assembly polls slated to be held on October 15. He is the father of Vikas Yadav, who, along with his cousins Vishal and Sukhdev, has been held guilty of murdering Nitish Katara because he was involved in a relationship with his sister Bharti Yadav. Katara also stated that she was hopeful that the BJP would do a course correction in this regard. Oct 1, 2014
