CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav today said there was no question of withdrawing support from the UPA government at this stage. “We are not withdrawing support and there is no such situation,” said the chief minister.
Yadav was replying to questions from mediapersons at the SP headquarters here after presiding over a meeting of district party presidents. “We extended support to the UPA government to fight communalism,” he said.
With this statement, Yadav sought to set to rest speculations that his party was going to withdraw support from the UPA government. Referring to the issue of phone tapping, Yadav said the SP had been raising the issue for the last one and a half years.
He said the Samajwadi Party would go to the people on the issue. Barring the Congress all other political parties had supported the Samajwadi Party’s stand on phone tapping, Yadav said while accusing the Congress of conspiring to destabilise his government.
The Congress resorted to all sorts of tactics to destabilse his government, he said adding the Congress stooped to the level of tapping phones. The Congress had an old history of hatching conspiracies, he said.
Replying to a question about the public interest litigation petition filed in the Supreme Court to demand a probe into assets accumulated by him and his family members, the Chief Minister said he had already declared his assets. The chief minister, however, refused to elaborate saying the issue was already in the apex court.
