Ayodhya: Training his guns at the Samajwadi
Party chief, expelled party leader Amar Singh on Saturday alleged
Mulayam Singh Yadav had compromised with the principles laid
down by socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia.
"Lohia had never encouraged nepotism but his followers
are doing so and appointing family members to party posts," he
told reporters here.
The expelled SP leader said he would undertake a 450-km
month-long "Swabhiman Yatra" from Allahabad to Gorakhpur to
press for a separate Purvanchal state.
The yatra would commence on December one, he said.
"Though I have been advised by doctors against taking
long walks, I will try to take permission or else cover the
distance on wheel chair," Amar Singh said.
On Ayodhya title suits, he expressed satisfaction over
both Hindus and Muslims exercising restraint in the aftermath
of the judgement.
He said his emotions and beliefs were attached with
Ayodhya and Lord Ram but flayed those who, he alleged, "are
selling Lord Rama for their ulterior motives".
