Meerut: BSP MLA Yogesh Verma today accused a noted criminal here of administering poison to him due to a political rivalry.

Verma alleged that Dhiraj Pahadia, wanted in a number of criminal cases, mixed poison in a cold drink which was passed on to him through villagers while he was campaigning yesterday for the panchayat elections.

Verma lost consciousness during the campaigning after he consumed a cold drink and was taken to a hospital where he was treated.

While talking to reporters here, Verma said that Dhiraj had earlier threatened him several times in the past to not enter his village, Pahadpur, as there was rivalry between them.
