Lucknow: Training his guns on Central and UP
governments, SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday alleged that
both were following "anti-poor and anti-farmer" policies.
"Both the governments are ignoring price rise, farmers
and indulge in misuse of public funds. They are against poor
and villages," Mulayam said at a party function here.
He claimed that during the three-year rule of the
Mayawati-led BSP government, development in the state had
taken a backseat.
"Loot, corruption and patronising criminals is the
character of this regime and there is complete jungle raj in
the state," the SP supremo said.
Mulayam said the country is facing several challenges
like tackling of corruption.
"At the time of independence, it was dreamt that the
country will prosper, people will get employment and get rid
of injustice and harassment, but these dreams could not be
realised. The country is facing several challenges and people
are facing tough time due to corruption and injustice," he
Mulayam added the party`s stance on Women Reservation
Bill and caste-based census is clearly in the "interest of the
backwards and minorities".
