Ambedkarnagar (UP): Intensifying his attack on Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma on Monday accused the former UP chief minister of betraying Muslim community. He also warned the community against SP’s vote bank politics.
The Congress leader also termed the SP government ‘as government of looters’ and vowed to settle his 30-year-old score with the SP chief.
Attacking the socialist views of Mulayam, Verma said, “Had the great socialist Ram Manohar Lohia been alive, he would have been crying over the brand of socialism being practiced by the SP chief.”
Warning Muslims, Verma said that SP government has always ‘deceived and betrayed them.’ On the recent death of terror suspect Khalid Mujahid, Verma said instead of releasing him, the state government ‘poisoned’ him.
Mujahid died in police custody in May while being taken to a prison in Lucknow from Barabanki. A probe into the matter is on. "The judicial report (Nimesh Commission) into the arrest of innocent youths in the serial blasts was submitted in August 2012, but was not released," Verma said.
