New Delhi: With less than a month to go for the Presidential elections 2012, Congress spokesperson and senior party leader Rashid Alvi has created a major controversy on Wednesday by alleging that the Samajwadi Party Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav was an agent of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“I have been saying this for the past 10 years – Mulayam Singh Yadav is the biggest agent of the BJP. He dances to the tunes of the saffron party," Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said.

The surprising statement was made by Alvi while campaigning for local body elections in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district.

It is to be noted that Mulayam Singh Yadav is supporting the Congress nominee on the issue of Presidential election and has already pledged his support for Pranab Mukherjee. The SP is also giving outside support to the UPA at the Centre.

After Alvi’s comments, there has been no reaction from the Samajwadi Party so far. But it is to be believed that the SP supremo will not take the controversial comment by the Congress leader lightly.

Alvi might also face the ire of the Congress party for allegedly commenting on Mulayam in such a manner.

The 14th indirect Presidential election will be held on July 19 to elect the 13th President of India. The last date for filing of nominations is June 30, while the counting of votes is set for July 22.
