Ghaziabad: Two days after his dismissal from
the Uttar Pradesh cabinet, former minister Rajpal Tyagi hit
out at chief minister Mayawati alleging that she was misled
against him by some of her close aides.

Tyagi, who represents the Muradnagar constituency of the
district, said yesterday that he fell victim to internal party
politics and alleged that some influential party leaders
indulged in corrupt practices and did not want him to continue
due to his clean image.

He said that he had tendered his resignation from the
post due to repeated victimisation five months back, but it
was turned down by the Chief Minister then.

On charges of corruption, Tyagi said no such complaint
against him has been filed in any administrative authority in
the country. He said he should have been informed the reasons
of his dismissal before being sacked.
