Mulayam not even fit to sweep PM’s house: Beni Prasad Verma

Union minister Beni Prasad Verma on Tuesday kicked up another controversy with his barbs at friend-turned foe Mulayam Singh Yadav, saying that the SP chief was not even fit to sweep the Prime Minister’s residence, drawing instant rebuke from the Congress.

‘Yadav wants to become Prime Minister. He should first try to get the job of a sweeper at the residence of the PM,’ 77-year Verma said at a programme in Uttar Pradesh’s Faizabad. He prefaced his remark by alleging that the SP was a party based on ‘lies and fraud’ and that it will be finished by the Congress.

Verma was once a close confidant of the Samajwadi Party supremo but was gradually sidelined after Amar Singh came into the picture. The Kurmi leader quit the party in 2007 and joined the Congress before 2009 Lok Sabha elections. Disapproving of Verma’s remarks, Congress once again ticked him off for his remarks against Yadav saying it was ‘regrettable and the party totally distances itself from that’.
