The-Great-Indian-Political-Drama: Akhilesh Yadav brings taps to press conference
Indian politics can never be sans drama and Wednesday's press conference of former Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav proved just that.
Claiming the allegations were meant to demean him, Yadav said he was returning the taps.
It's a conspiracy by BJP, alleges Akhilesh Yadav
Akhilesh Yadav said he smelled a conspiracy by the BJP. "The BJP is saying that he had taken away taps. I want to give them taps through the media," he said.
The Samajwadi Party Chief alleged CM's OSD Abhishek (Kaushik) and IAS Mrityunjay Narain went to his house before media entered and photographs were taken later.
A fuming Yadav said he was awaiting the report.
Show me where is the pool, asks Akhilesh Yadav
On reports that he spent Rs. 42 crore on the renovation of 4, Vikramaditya Marg property, Akhilesh Yadav said he would return items if it is proved he took any.
"Some say there was a swimming pool, which I filled before leaving the premises. I am ready to go there again. Show me where is the pool," he said.
Ready to return all taps, government can give count: Yadav

Further, Akhilesh Yadav adds BJP rattled after by-polls defeat
Akhilesh Yadav said the allegations were BJP's retaliation after an embarrassing defeat in Kairana, Noorpur, Gorakhpur and Phulpur.
"I want to tell BJP that the same officers will find out something when you leave your house. They might come out with a chilam," he said.
He claimed he would be using the gym in his new house.
In his rant, Yadav didn't even spare Governor Ram Naik
"He (Naik) is a good person but he is not following the Constitution. He does not have the Constitution in his soul but there is the RSS," said Akhilesh. On Tuesday, Ram Naik directed the state government to take action against those who vandalized bungalow.
Obviously, BJP had rebuttals for Akhilesh Yadav's press meet
Soon after Akhilesh Yadav's hurriedly convened press conference, BJP came up with counter questions.
UP Minister Siddharth Nath Singh asked why walls of the bungalow were demolished. "What was hidden behind the wall that you had to break it down?" questioned Singh.
Singh advised Yadav to come clear on his income that was spent on the house's renovation.
