It`s ear-for-an-ear between Mulayam and Mayawati: JD(U)
New Delhi: Janata Dal (United) leader Ali Anwar on Tuesday accused Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and other political leaders of indulging in vote bank politics in the run up to the 2014 General Elections.
Reacting to Yadav`s statement that he had no choice but to order security personnel to open fire on Kar Sevaks as they pulled down the Babri Mosque structure in Ayodhya, Anwar said politicians "keep changing colours", especially when elections are around the corner.
"Right now, everybody is concerned about gathering votes. I haven`t looked into the specifics of what he (Mulayam Singh Yadav) has said," said Anwar.
Anwar`s reaction came after Yadav said the decision to fire at the `kar sevaks` in Ayodhya in 1990 "was painful" but he had no other option.
Commenting on the Mayawati-Mulayam Singh rivalry, he said: "There is so much competition between Mayawati and Mulayam Singh, that if one cuts their ears off, the other will do exactly the same".
