‘Cong behind phone-tapping’

ONCE AGAIN announcing to dispose of his entire movable and immovable properties for just Rs 14 crore, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav said the Congress-led UPA Government was involved in tapping the phones of more than 300 prominent people in Delhi.

Addressing a conference in Etawah, the Chief Minister expressed surprise that the Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil did not know about the summoning of SP general secretary Amar Singh by Delhi Police.

He said, whenever he asked about phone tapping, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Patil gave a stock reply: “will look into it”. Yadav said the Central Government had also conspired to create a rift between Amar Singh and Anil Ambani of Reliance.

The Chief Minister said the entire opposition had been wiped out in zila panchayat chairmen’s election and the Congress could not win even in its stronghold Rae Bareli and Amethi. He said in the past, in Mainpuri Lok Sabha bye-election, the Congress and BJP had performed badly. Asserting that he had full support of people, Yadav said he did not believe in conspiracy against political rivals.

The Chief Minister also called upon the area panchayat members to ensure the victory of the SP-supported candidates in block pramukh election. He said criminalisation of the politics could be stopped only by induction of students into politics.

Referring to support price given to sugarcane farmers, the Chief Minister said it was highest in the country. He said efforts were being made for the establishment of two sugar mills in central UP.
