Modi all ears to Mulayam, pats Akhilesh during swearing-in of Adityanath | Video Prime minister Narendra Modi shares a light moment with Akhilesh and Mulayam. PTI

Lucknow: Rising above electoral bitterness and putting on the back burner their slanging matches during Uttar Pradesh campaign, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh and his father Mulayam attended the swearing in ceremony of Yogi Adityanath.

After the nearly 90-minute event at Kanshiram Smriti Upvan, the father-son duo moved towards prime minister Narendra Modi and were seen exchanging pleasantries.

Reflecting warmth, Modi shook hands with Akhilesh and patted him on his shoulder. He also held the hands of Mulayam, who was seen whispering something to Modi.

And the prime minister was all ears.

In his rallies, Modi had ridiculed the opposition alliance of SP and Congress, saying they together stood for 'SCAM' (Samajwadi, Congress and Mayawati).

Not to be outdone, Akhilesh came out with his own take on SCAM, saying it stood for 'Save Country from Amit (Shah) and Modi'.

His remark asking megastar Amitabh Bachchan not to endorse "donkeys of Gujarat" also left the BJP fuming, with Modi hitting back at the chief minister.

BSP supremo Mayawati, however, was not present at the venue.
