New Delhi: Congress on Thursday dubbed as an
instance of "Mayawati`s jungleraj" the criminal case filed by
Uttar Pradesh police against Union Ministers Jitin Prasad and
RPN Singh for allegedly assaulting Samajwadi Party workers
during Rahul Gandhi`s rally in Phulpur recently.

"The issue is that those who broke the laws, fooled the
police, reached the helipad without any authority of being
there, no case has been filed against them," party General
Secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters.

"And those who caught them and stopped them from reaching
the helipad, cases have been filed against all of them. Even
case has been filed against the police. This is what I called
Mayawati`s jungleraj," he said.

The Allahabad police has also lodged criminal cases against
Congress legislature party leader in UP Pramod Tiwari and MLC
Naseeb Pathan.

The FIR was lodged on a complaint by Abhishek Yadav, one
of the four SP youth wing supporters who alleged he had been
thrashed by SPG personnel and the Congress leaders at the
venue of Rahul Gandhi`s rally on Monday.

Yadav was arrested along with three other supporters of
Samajwadi Yuvjan Sabha when they were running towards Rahul
Gandhi`s helicopter, trying to show him a black flag.

They were pressing the demand for restoring students`
union at the Allahabad University which was accorded central
status in 2005.
