Lucknow: Alleging large scale corruption by the BSP regime, Leader of Opposition in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Shivpal Singh Yadav on Monday said Samajwadi Party would continue to raise its voice against government scams.

"In the four year rule of the BSP, a scam to the tune of Rs 40,000 crore had taken place in construction works.

Scams have taken place in almost all the departments," Yadav alleged while talking to the reporters here.

He alleged that a scam of Rs 15,000 crore had taken place in purchase of wheat, paddy and rice in food and civil supplies department.

"While crores of rupees were wasted by the government, law and order situation hit the bottom with rapes and murders involving ruling BSP MLAs and minister," Yadav said.

The SP leader alleged that the behaviour of Chief Minister Mayawati was totally undemocratic and she was conspiring to plant her men in local bodies by conducting indirect elections of mayors and chairmen.

He also condemned police action on partymen during three day agitation from March 7 and termed it as "barbaric".

"But the SP will not get fazed by these things, we will continue to raise the issues related to the people," Yadav said.
