Mulayam fumes at people from Yadav bastion
Despite huge funds, Yadav said there appeared to be no end to yearning, reports Masoodul Hasan.india Updated: Nov 15, 2006 22:39 IST
Even though chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav has pumped in huge fund for the development of "Yadav bastion" consisting of Etawah, Mainpuri and Etah, the people did not appear to be satisfied. There appeared to be no end to yearning for more, as Yadav pointed out.
During interaction with people of Etawah- Mainpuri here on Wednesday the chief minister seemed quite perturbed with them for asking more. “They will never be satisfied” Yadav fumed at a gathering of people from his hometown. Saifai, village of the chief minister, has alone attracted huge budgetary allocations during the last three years. He said only people of Etawah and Mainpuri had not made him the chief minister. There were others also, he said. Yadav said he had not visited his assembly segment Gunnaur in Badayun for the last several months but there was no complaint from there. But he was flooded with complaints and applications from Etawah and Mainpuri. Even today the people were trying to thrust applications into his hand.
However he wanted his people to come out to ensure his victory in the forthcoming elections. He said “agar kaam nahin hua to naraz mat ho jao aur hame jetao, tumahre sare kaam ho jai gein” (if your work has not been done don’t get angry, ensure victory in the election, your all work would be done later). The SP district office-bearers, who had assembled here to participate in review meeting of local bodies election, had complained against the SP MLAs. The chief minister said MLAs had committed irregularities but don’t “remove me” for their mistakes.
Targeting Raj Bhawan Yadav said “every day his government is being dismissed” and he had been working under tremendous pressure. Yadav said dismissal had not been possible because he had the support of the people. He said Congress, BSP and BJP had joined hands to dislodge the him from the power. Yadav said the elections were fast approaching and the party cadre should fan out in area without further delay.
