Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav waves to his supporters after he filed his nomination at Mainpuri in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh in this April 17, 2009 file photo. The Samajwadi Party (SP) is led by Yadav, 72, a former wrestler who harbours prime ministerial ambitions. He opposes many of the government's economic reforms but supports Singh's coalition to block the rise of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the main opposition in parliament.
