Lucknow: A day after the end of its
three-day agitation against Mayawati government in Uttar
Pradesh, Samajwadi Party on Thursday came down heavily against the
Chief Minister, saying everyone knew how she had misused her
position to amass huge wealth despite her humble beginnings.
"Aurat hone ke naate kuch bol nahi raha hun..Sau rupai
ki haisiyat nahi thi aur ab karodo ki malkin hai...yeh sab
kaise hua sab jaante hain" (I am not saying anything much as
she is a woman...She did not even have status worth Rs 100 and
now has crores..everyone knows how this happened), SP leader
Shivpal Singh Yadav, who appeared before the media with a
bandage on his head told reporters.
Alleging that he was beaten up by policemen while
coming out of the district jail this morning, he said the
protocol in view of his being Leader of the Opposition in the
state Assembly was not followed.
The party workers were brutally assaulted by policemen
despite the fact they were peaceful and had not damaged any
public property anywhere in the state during the agitation,
Accusing officers of perpetrating atrocities on party
workers during the three-day stir, he asked them to be ready
to face the consequences after SP came to power in the state.
"Our leader Mulayam Singh Yadav had faced emergency and
he is not at all afraid of Mayawati and ....the dalal (broker)
officers surrounding her," Yadav said terming the three-day SP
agitation, which ended yesterday, as successful.
He also said that Mayawati did not have the status to
stand in front of party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.
