Mulayam trying to evoke Muslim sentiments on Babri demolition issues: Digvijay

January 10, 2012 - Ballia

Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh has lashed out at Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for trying to evoke Muslim sentiments on the controversial Babri Masjid demolition issue.

Addressing a public rally here, Singh said: "The Babri Masjid was demolished by Kalyan Singh then why did Mulayam Singh Yadav fight the elections with him? Mulayamji has never answered this question. I always raised this issue. Mulyamji has never spoken against RSS. I think they have kept a door open to get in to coalition with the BJP to form a government"

Increasing the political temperature in the poll bound Uttar Pradesh, Mulayam Singh Yadav had earlier reiterated that Babri Masjid existed in Ayodhya while Hindus never treated the place as holy.

Singh further said that the BJP turned a blind eye to corruption in states such as Karnataka, Uttarakhand and Punjab, which it rules.

"The senior leader of Bharatiya Janata Party took an anti- corruption rally all over the India but he never spoke a word about the chief minister of Karnataka and Uttarakhand chief minister who were found guilty of corruption charges. He himself had removed both the chief ministers from power after accepting that they were guilty of corruption," said Singh.

Uttar Pradesh will elect a new 403-member state assembly in March, and the poll results are expected to broadly indicate trends for 2014 general elections.
