KEEPING AWAY from the controversy over public outbursts of party MP Raj Babbar against him, Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh today trained his guns at Congress accusing it of compromising country’s foreign policy and toeing the US line on the Iran issue.

“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi are working as blind followers of the United States and have risked the very sovereignty of the country by referring the Iran issue to the UN Security Council,” he said addressing a conference of weavers here.

Reiterating that his party would oppose the visit of President George Bush to India, Singh said the US wanted to force its will over other countries.

Lashing out at the Congress, Singh said it had always followed the policy which harmed national interests.

The SP leader also flayed Bharatiya Janata Party, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Shiv Sena saying policies pursued by them not only created disharmony in society but also earned a bad name for the country.

Singh said Congress was in the habit of using “Shinkhandis” (a character in Mahabharat) for attacking its opponents.

Referring to developmental works undertaken by the Mulayam Singh Yadav Government, he said his party had succeeded in giving a momentum to these.
On problems faced by weavers, Amar Singh the Chief Minister was serious in addressing them.
