SP Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday accused the Uttar Pradesh Governor TV Rajeswar of being soft on the ruling BSP and alleged that the constitutional authority is "impressing" Congress that the BSP may help them form the next government at the centre.
"The Governor has assured the Congress high command that the BSP was in for major gains in the coming elections and it would ensure that a Congress prime minister assumes office after the Lok Sabha polls," Yadav said after his party disrupted the governor's address to the joint session of the state legislature which began in Lucknow on Tuesday.
Yadav alleged that the UP Congress want to run itself with the help of the Governor but in turn, he was ruining the party.
Charging the state government with all round failure, especially on the law and order front, the SP leader said if the Governor had desired he could have stopped the atrocities at the hands of the police as well as the ruling party MLAs and ministers by taking up the issues with the chief minister.
"He used to continuously write letters when I was chief minister... What has happened now when officials are being killed at the hands of ruling party men," he said.
He also alleged that BSP MLAs and ministers are grabbing precious land in the state capital.
