Lucknow: Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav today vindicated the opposition charges of misrule in the party's government in Uttar Pradesh with warning the cadres to mend themselves or people will throw the government out. Addressing party workers at a function on the ninth death anniversary of former PM Chandrashekher here, Mr Yadav said," I have information that some of the party leaders are involved in land grabbing, loot, corruption and making money. This should be stopped or else party will be taught a lesson in the coming elections". The SP supremo added that people have learnt to make kings and then throwing them on road. "I have all the information about such people but I often choose to remain silent and express my annoyance by gestures.
This was not the first time Mr Yadav had expressed his annoyance in the state of affairs in the government as well as in the party. However, the recent statement would put the Opposition in the state on their toes against the ruling Samajwadi Party. Earlier, the SP had expelled senior party leader Vijay Bahadur Yadav and his district panchayat chairman wife for grabbing land in the state capital yesterday. Meanwhile UP BJP spokesperson Vijay Bahadur Pathak said the statement of Mr Yadav is a glaring example of the state of affairs in the state. "When even the SP supremo have admitted that the party leaders are grabbing land and involved in criminal act, people should now be aware about the real picture of the party in the coming assembly polls," Mr Pathak said. Congress leader Amarnath Agarwal too said the situation in UP has been deteriorating day by day and when now the SP president has expressed his annoyance it seems that the condition of the state is really too bad. He said in the coming assembly polls in UP people would teach them a lesson.
