According to a news channel report, Netaji was 'miffed' as the Left parties backed Jayalalithaa ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2014.
He reportedly said during a rally in Gonda district in Uttar Pradesh, "Jayalalithaa is fighting for 40 seats but SP is fighting for 80 seats."
"Even if she (J Jayalalithaa) wins all, the number is still half of UP and am sure that youngsters from the state will give us much more seats this time," he added.
Mulayam claimed to be a 'king-maker' after the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls as he said, "no government would be possible at the Centre without the support of Samajwadi Party."
However, earlier in the day, Jayalalithaa said while addressing the media, "this is not the time to discuss and decide who will be the prime ministerial candidate for the upcoming general elections".
