Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh on Wednesday accused the Congress of using the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) against his party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav.
"CBI has become Congress Bureau of Investigation," Singh alleged, reacting to the reports that the premier had gone by the allegations made in a PIL against Yadav even without verifying them from his family members.
"Congress is not giving regional parties their due, which is a matter of concern," the SP leader told reporters at the party office in Mumbai.
Singh alleged that the CBI had registered a disproportionate assets case against Yadav on the basis of the PIL without verification.
"It should be proved that the alleged assets, including a cinema hall and a hotel, belong to Mulayam Singh," he demanded.
