Making light of his praise for Advani, BJP says Mulayam has no credibility

BJP made light on Tuesday of the praise heaped on its senior leader LK Advani by Mulayam Singh Yadav, saying the Samajwadi Party chief has "lost all credibility" and keeps changing his views on support to the UPA government.

Asked about Yadav's words of praise for Advani, BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said "The praise by a person whose personal credibility is lost is of no relevance. His credibility on support to UPA is over. One day he pledges support to the government, the next day he withdraws it, on the third day he praises a leader and then backs out."

BJP wondered about the reason behind this frequent change of opinion by Yadav and asked if this is because CBI is troubling him or he has struck a deal with Congress.

"Yadav's statement is full of frustration. Nobody is ready to believe that he wants to abandon UPA. BJP does not take any of Yadav's statements seriously," Rudy said.

BJP also hit out at Congress, alleging it has two power centres and claiming this has now been owned up by a senior party leader as well.

"We had all along said that the UPA is governed by two power centres but Congress kept denying this. There is a power Centre at 10, Janpath (Sonia Gandhi's residence) and 7, RCR (Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's house). This contradiction has now been revealed by none other than a general secretary of Congress," Rudy said.

He charged the UPA of being the "worst administration ever", which according to him was the obvious reason why "it is crumbling today".
