Beni attacks UP govt again

Firing a fresh salvo at Samajwadi Party, Union minister of steel Beni Prasad Verma on Monday said that the Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh will fall after the next Lok Sabha elections because of its misdeeds.

‘In the next Lok sabha elections people will reject Samajwadi Party and it will crumble like a pack of cards. People have seen the true colours of this Government in just one year. It has failed to provide relief to people,’ he told mediapersons here on Monday.

Last month Union minister had said that Mulayam Singh Yadav’s party will win only four seats in the Lok Sabha polls and there will be a ‘funeral procession’ for the party. He had claimed that Congress would emerge as the main gainer.

In retaliation, SP leaders  had claimed that Beni Prasad Verma would not be able to win his own seat, what to talk about others.

The Kurmi clan leader also alleged that Mulayam Singh Yadav should be held responsible for the demolition of Babri Mosque at Ayodhya. ‘ SP and BJP had joined hands in conspiring to demolish the disputed structure. Mulayam was equally responsible like BJP leaders in the demolition,’ he said.

Commenting on the recent dispute between BJP and JD (U) over Prime Ministerial candidature of Narendra Modi and JD (U) supporting L K Advani for the post, Verma said that both Modi and Advani are communal and both are responsible for creating riots in the country. While Modi has massacred people in Gujarat, Advani did this during his Ayodhya Rath Yatra.

The relation between Beni Prasad Verma and Mulayam Singh are nor conducive as the Union ministre had earlier claimed that Mulayam has ‘terrorist links’.


The ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh on Monday cautioned BSP leader Mayawati and told her to control her diatribe against SP workers.

Public works department minister Shivpal Singh Yadav said: ‘She is saying all sorts of things about our party workers. She should remain calm.’

Shivpal Singh, the younger brother of SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, added that ‘it would be difficult to control SP workers’ who are enraged by Mayawati’s comments.

At a public rally here on Sunday, Mayawati had warned SP workers and threatened them of dire consequences if her party was voted back to power. She had said that ‘SP goons would be thrashed black and blue’.

The SP trashed charges of political vendetta levelled by former chief minister Mayawati and said had it been the case she would have been behind bars.

Shivpal Singh said that instead of slamming the SP, the BSP leader should introspect on why her party lost in the assembly elections in 2012.
