I have given him advice on family as well. I have kept the family united. Dharmendra and Akhilesh have been made MPs...I have done all these but in a hidden manner," she added. Reacting on the allegations that she was behind the Samajwadi Party feud, Sadhna said time has done everything and no one is to be blamed for it. "I have given time to everyone.be it Professor (Ram Gopal Yadav) or his children, Dharmendra, Tipu or the daughter-in-laws. I have considered all as a family. I always wanted to give credit to Netaji. I always thought I am able to do things because of him. People should not have got the courage otherwise to say so many things about me. I was brought up in a family where my father used to say that one should not publicise good work, but now time is different," she added. (ANI)
