CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav today threatened to expose former Prime Minister VP Singh on backward class issue. Without taking his name, the chief minister said an unnecessary row had erupted over the acquisition of land for Reliance power plant in Dadri.
Addressing a public meeting in Bulandshahr on Sunday, Yadav said if he told the people about the mindset of the leader (VP Singh) towards the backward classes, “to sari netagiri dhari rah jaye gi (he would forget all politics).
Claiming that the government was committed to the welfare of farmers, the chief minister said market rate had been given to them for the Reliance project land. He said the government had decided not to take over land without consent of farmers. He said those announcing to plough tractors (on Dadri land) did not know that adequate compensation had been given to the farmers.
He said some leaders had been making hue and cry over Dadri project but they did nothing for the state during their regime. Yadav said these leaders were least concerned about the problems of farmers. The chief minister said that land to industrial houses had also been allotted in West Bengal, Rajasthan and other states but these leaders did not go there to launch protest.
Yadav said the Central Government had been creating problems for the state on the instruction of the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. The chief minister said he would write to Sonia Gandhi about step motherly treatment to the state on power front.
He said a conspiracy had also been hatched to dismiss the state government on law and order issue. Yadav said there had been vast improvement in the situation and people could move around in the state even in night. Referring to the Samajwadi Party-Rashtriya Lok Dal alliance, the chief minister said it would continue at any cost. Yadav said he was ready to pay any price to sustain the pact, which came into existence for change in the state.
