Akhilesh Yadav
Mysore, Mar 8: Akhilesh Yadav, a new favorite in the circles of Indian politics is likely to become the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. The new face of Uttar Pradesh politics, has an bachelors from the Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE), Mysore . An avid football fanatic, he owes his broken nose to the game, dating back to his college days.

"The ball directly hit his face while playing on SJCE ground. His nose is still not fixed. Even today his hand inadvertently reaches out to the nose whenever he remembers Mysore," recollected MS Karuna, assistant professor, Rohilkhand University and a year senior to Akhilesh Yadav at SJCE.

He further said that doctors advised Akhilesh not to undergo surgery for the nose fracture.

“He had an open jeep and on seeing me waiting at the bus stop always offered to drop me at my place in Vontikoppal after college," said Karuna.

He further said that he and Akhilesh's friendship continue even today and they keep meeting every six months.

"Whenever he comes to Bareilly, he makes it a point to meet me and the discussion mainly revolves around college days. Last time, he came was for an election campaign and despite the busy schedule, he spent about 30 minutes with me," he said.

“I remember Akhil having hurt his nose while he was a student here. I don’t exactly remember how it happened," said Shakib Ur Rahman, vice-principal who failed to recollect the incident.
