Lucknow: Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma sent a shocking wave in Congress by calling SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav his elder brother.

Verma even did not hesitate from saying that his relation with Mulayam has improved. While claiming that he was instrumental in Mulayam Singh Yadav extending support to the beleaguered UPA government.

The Steel Minister said that he has 35 year old relations with SP chief. He said that there was a good understanding between him and Mulayam. However, he declined to admit that his recent statements should be considered as his tilt towards SP.

He further said that he has accepted Sonia Gandhi as well as Rahul as his leaders and asserted that he wanted to see Congress General Secretary as the next Prime Minister of the country.

Earlier, he had given 100 percent marks to performance of Akhilesh Yadav government.
