UPA Govt trying to send me to jail: Mulayam
Coming down heavily on the UPA government at the Centre which his party helped survive after the Left withdrew its support over the Indo-US nuclear deal, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav has charged it with using the CBI to try and put him behind bars.
"The government, which we have supported during the height of the Indo-US nuclear deal imbroglio, is now trying to send me to jail with CBI's help," the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister told a function at Charan Singh PG College in Etawah on Thursday.
"The CBI is preparing fake documents to frame me (in the disproportionate assets case)," he said.
He said party General Secretary Amar Singh, however, came to know about this and found out how "the property of others was mentioned against my name".
Yadav also flayed the Centre's faulty foreign policy and said the country stood isolated at the global level because of that.
Turning to farmers, he said there was a move to stop the subsidy provided to them.
