Lucknow: A day after Uttar Pradesh
government issued a white paper to counter opposition charges
on corruption, BJP on Saturday hit back alleging that Chief Minister
Mayawati`s brother and BSP general secretary Satish Misra`s
son were involved in scam worth crores of rupees by floating
fake firms.

Rejecting the charges as baseless, BSP sources said that
BJP was "frustrated" because it has been totally alienated
from poor, dalits, backward and minority community.

"Mayawati`s brother Anand Kumar and Kapil Kumar,
20-year-old son of BSP national general secretary Satish
Chandra Mishra, floated dozens of fake firms in order to
absorb scam money," national secretary of BJP, Kirit Somaiya
told newspersons here today.

To stress his point, Somaiya released a list of 125
companies which he claimed belonged to these people.

Somaiya said that BJP has lodged a formal complaint
in this connection with the ministry for company affairs,
enforcement bureau and central bureau of direct taxes.
