Rampur: SP leader and UP Minister Azam Khan questioned why the Centre had not taken action against Law Minister Salman Khurshid's NGO, which is in controversy over allegedly forging names of beneficiaries of a scheme for the handicapped.

"Why is the Union Government not coming forward to take action against Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid's NGO," Khan, whose party extends outside support to the UPA, told reporters.

The state urban development minister claimed that he was victimised during the Mayawati regime for launching welfare schemes.

Attacking the Centre, he said "this UPA Government and the Congress headed by Sonia Gandhi are being recognised and will be recognised for scams."

Khan also criticised Arvind Kejriwal, saying he has got into the habit of levelling charges to get cheap popularity.

"Kejriwal would realise his political strength in the coming elections just like Anna Hazare who has been rejected and forgotten by the masses," the SP leader said.
