SAMAJWADI PARTY State working committee member Gopal Yadav condemned the Congress for getting the telephones of SP president Mulayam Singh Yadav and general secretary Amar Singh tapped.

He said party activists would not tolerate the insult of senior party leaders and would expose the Congress for “having an understanding with communal forces”.
Talking to mediapersons, Gopal Yadav condemned the Congress for launching a bid to topple the Mulayam Singh Government and said the Congress was never in favour of political stability.

He said destabilising the SP-led State Government would bring development projects to a grinding halt. These projects had been launched by chief minister Mulayam Singh to transform Uttar Pradesh into Uttam Pradesh, he said.

Yadav claimed that the SP ensured the defeat of BJP candidates in the last Parliamentary elections, which paved the way of formation of a non-BJP government at the Centre. He said that the Congress should not forget the crucial role of the SP in defeating communal forces. He said the BJP was experiencing unprecedented infighting and had become a carbon copy of the Congress.

Responding to a question regarding the role of rebel SP MLA Kamlesh Paswan, Gopal Yadav said party would write a new chapter in the politics of eastern UP after defeating saffron forces in the ZP election. He said the victory of the party candidate would definitely give a new dimension to politics in the region.
