Shravasti: Samajwadi Party state unit
chief Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday took potshots at opposition
parties, including ruling BSP, saying Chief Minister Mayawati
was cutting a share in the corruption money and the Congress
Party was confused in its stand on reservation to Muslims.

"Mayawati takes share of corruption by her ministers. She
per day counts at least Rs 100 crores given to her by corrupt
leaders and officers", Yadav said while addressing a gathering
here.

On Congress` reservation promise to Muslims, he said, the
party is confused. "After providing 4.5 per cent reservation
to minorities, Congress leader Salman Khursheed is now talking
of giving 9 per cent reservation to Muslims. Why is the party
confused," he asked.

On SP-RLD coalition, Yadav said that it would hardly make
an impact in the Assembly polls.

Hailing the decision of EC to cover statues of Mayawati
and BSP symbol Elephant, Yadav said that it was a good
decision.

On seizure of money by EC teams, Akhilesh said that it
should not be done to harass traders.
