New Delhi, 14 Sept: Congress leader Rashid Alvi, who was reprimanded by his party earlier for describing Mr Mulayam Singh Yadav as biggest agent of the BJP, today launched a scathing attack against the SP chief asking him to “disclose” “what had transpired” in his meeting with VHP chief last month.
“Mulayam Singh Yadav is strengthening the hands of the BJP. The communal riots that have happened in western UP have now proved right what I said one year back. Mulayam Singh and the BJP are together and this is amply proved by the incidents that have taken place now,” Mr Alvi told PTI.
Addressing a public meeting at Moradabad in June last year during a campaign for municipal corporation elections, Mr Alvi, then a spokesperson of Congress had made the comments against Mr Mulayam singh Yadav. The Congress had immediately disowned Mr Alvi’s remarks at a time when the party was seeking support of many parties for its Presidential nominee Pranab Mukherjee.
Mr Alvi was dropped as Congress spokesperson in May this year. He had earlier failed to get a re-nomination for Rajya Sabha after his term from Andhra Pradesh expired in April 2012. Before joining Congress, Mr Alvi was in the BSP.
