LAUNCHING A frontal attack on AICC president Sonia Gandhi and MP Rahul Gandhi, Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh today castigated them for ‘misutilising’ a section of the media for promotion of their political interests.
Ridiculing the Congress for its weak position in UP, Amar Singh said some mediapersons were boosting the Sonia-Rahul team without knowing the ground reality prevailing in the state.

Lauding the leadership of SP MP Akhilesh Yadav, Singh said the ‘Raj Kumar’ (Rahul Gandhi) did not know the basics of rural life and the ‘Rajmata’ (Sonia Gandhi) did not know the situation of her party in UP.

In fact, not only Amar Singh but Akhilesh Yadav also targeted Rahul Gandhi in his address. He said: “Unhe adrak nahin maloom kaise paida hota hai (he doesn’t how ginger is produced). Referring to a picture of Rahul Gandhi sipping tea at a roadside dhaba in Amethi, Akhilesh taunted that Rahul was far from real rural life.

Singh said whenever the SP won the election there was no proper coverage but when the party lost two assembly seats recently the media declared that SP had been losing ground in the state.

Flaying the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh on phone tapping issue, he said the PM did not have any information on any issue. Referring to the assets of Chief Minister Malayam Singh Yadav, he said the chief minister was ready to dispose of his assets for Rs ten crore.

Addressing the gathering, SP vice-president Janeshwar Mishra called upon the youth to gear up for a big fight against the Centre. He said without struggle a constitutional guarantee for employment was not possible and the SP would take lead in this matter.

He said the entire opposition had ganged up against the SP in the state.
SP state unit chief Ramsaran Das, SP parliamentary party leader Ramgopal Yadav and PWD Minister Shiv Pal Yadav were the other prominent speakers who addressed the rally.
