THE UTTAR Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) today alleged that assets of Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav and his family members were more than listed in the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed in Supreme Court alleging that Yadav and his family members, including his son Akhilesh Yadav, had amassed wealth disproportionate to their known sources of income.

Talking to the media, UPCC organisation in-charge Satyadev Tripathi said the Chief Minister had violated provisions of the Representation of People’s Act by not disclosing all his assets. Tripathi countered allegations that the Congress was behind the PIL saying Yadav had violated provisions of law and the petitioner Vishwanath Chaturvedi ‘Mohan’ was within his rights to file the PIL.

This was not for the first time that a PIL had been filed against such personality, Tripathi said. He added earlier Bharatiya Janata Party’s Sushil Kumar Modi had filed a similar petition against Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad Yadav.

Referring to the recently concluded zila panchayat elections, he said the Mulayam Government was a threat to democracy. A Rae Bareli MLA was shifted to a local hospital to influence zila panchayat elections there, he said adding the Congress was ashamed of Mulayam Government’s acts of indulging in corruption and patronising criminals.
