CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav today suspected a conspiracy in the desecration of Dr Ambekar’s statute in Kanpur and violent demonstrations in Maharashtra soon after. Claiming credit for the unprecedented development of the State in the last three years, he said that the Opposition was nervous and shying away from going to the people though his Government had already recommended Vidhan Sabha elections in February.

Speaking at a function organised by the Samajwadi Bhurji Mahasabha (SBM) at the Ravindralaya to honour him on Sunday, Yadav said that those sitting on Constitutional posts were trying to avoid elections on one pretext or the other through undemocratic means.

He claimed that the law and order situation in the State was much better than any of the 33 states of the country while the situation in Delhi was the worst.
He urged the Bhurji community to come out and fight for its rights while assuring them of their due, if the SP returned to power in the State.

Yadav said that he had tried to do justice to one and all irrespective of their caste and community. Not only this, equal importance was given to rural and urban areas in development while special welfare schemes were launched for the upliftment of the poor and the downtrodden, he added. Yadav regretted that some people with vested interests were trying to highlight Dr BR Ambedkar as the leader of a particular caste, while the fact was that he was a great national leader.

Earlier, SBM president, Nanak Din Bhurji, accorded a warm welcome to Yadav and also presented him a golden crown.
