Rahul attacks Mulayam, reaches out to Muslims

The SP and BSP leaders only make promises and do little for the development of the state.



Kanpur: In a scathing attack on Mulayam Singh Yadav, Rahul Gandhi today said that Samajwadi Party supremo
who claims to be a leader of Muslims should tell them what he
has done for the community during his three stints as chief
minister of Uttar Pradesh.

"Mulayam Singh says that `I am a leader of Muslims`. So
many of our Muslim brothers are standing here. He formed
government thrice in the last 22 years. You should tell me
what he did for you," the Congress general secretary said
addressing an election rally in Muslim-dominated area of
Chamanganj here.

When the crowd responded with cries of "nothing, nothing",
Rahul continued, "So tell me what kind of leader is he. He
claims to be your leader and does nothing for you".

Taking on Yadav in the issue of subquota for minorities,
Rahul said, "When Mulayam Singh was the chief minister, the
media would ask him about his views on Muslim reservation, but
he would remain tight-lipped.

"You will be surprised to know that the state which has
over 70 districts has only one Muslim District Magistrate. Now
Congress has given you reservation, so Mulayam says that he
would have done more.

"I want to ask him why did he not do it when he was the
chief minister thrice. Had he done anything from the Muslims,
the community would not have been so backward. He took your
vote but did nothing for you," Rahul said.

Accusing SP and BSP of making false promises, Rahul said,
"We will not make any promise because we believe in action.
The SP and BSP leaders only make promises and do little for
the development of the state."

Vowing to change Uttar Pradesh in five years if the
Congress comes to power, he said, "I have come here to forge a
relationship. I am 41 years of age and our relationship will
continue for next 20-25 years".
