Lakhimpur/Sitapur, Jan 25 (ANI): Lashing out at Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, Congress party general secretary Digvijay Singh called him an 'opportunist.'
Talking to reporters here, Singh accused Yadav of being biased and of him having an inclination towards the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)."Mulayam Singh never speaks a single word against the Sangh because he wants to keep one door open so that he can form a government in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party if such a need arises," Singh said.
Meanwhile, SP state president Akhilesh Yadav slammed Rashtriya Lokmanch Party president Amar Singh over his recent scathing verbal attack on the Yadavs.
"Now we are playing the politics of vote; we are fighting to garner votes, unlike old days the public knows everything and whom to vote for. It through votes that we fight elections, governments are formed and broken, he just does not have anything else to speak of," Yadav said in Sitapur.Uttar Pradesh polls are being viewed as an opportunity for major parties to re-establish their foothold in the country's fifth largest and most populous state.
