Union minister for micro and small industries Kalraj Mishra on Saturday termed the Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh a “party of terrorists”.
Speaking to reporters here, Mishra said, “The Samajwadi Party is a party of terrorists, and this revelation came from (former) senior (party) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh himself.”
He said Singh had admitted that terrorists of Mumbai were being given asylum by SP leaders.
“The revelation made by Amar Singh will be investigated through a proper probe,” Mishra said.
The Union minister also claimed that Singh had said the same people who had reportedly given asylum to terrorists, also had a hand in Muzaffarnagar riots.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Singh had said, “SP leader Rajendra Chowdhary had termed PM Modi and Amit Shah as ‘Aatankwadi’ (terrorist), but the fact is that terrorism is patronised by these people (SP leaders). The terrorists involved in the bomb explosions in the country take shelter in the house of a prominent SP leader in Mumbai,” he said, adding Delhi Police had information of all such activities.
Singh further alleged that a Pakistani spy was caught from the house of a man very close to a senior SP leader.
“All these things, including the linkage of Bhopal unit of SIMI, should be investigated, and I urge the PM to take immediate action against those people whose ‘janmakundalis’ (birth horoscopes) are with him,” Singh had said.
Taking a jibe at BSP chief Mayawati for her apparent remarks on Modi, Mishra said, “I wonder when she started speaking in English. It is quite possible that she can converse in English, but so far no one has heard it”.
He also termed the Congress-SP alliance an alliance of “psychologically defeated people”.
