Ignore Kejriwal, says Mulayam

Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday virtually defended Union Minister Salman Khurshid and BJP president Nitin Gadkari and slammed anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal terming his allegations as ‘baseless’ and that he should not be given any importance


“We should not give him much importance, he will soon get tired of making allegations,” Mulayam said in an informal chat with reporters at a function here.

“Kejriwal has been making all kinds of allegations against everyone, he has not even spared me and said that I have colluded with the Congress”, the SP chief added.

He also said that the allegations were one sided and without any authentic proof. “Now that Kejriwal has joined politics, he will know about the positive and the negative aspects of democracy,” Mulayam said.

The SP supremo also rubbished the charges against senior Congress leader Narain Dutt Tiwari and asked him to settle in Uttar Pradesh.

Earlier, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had rebuked the anti-graft activist when he doubted the state government’s intention to conduct a fair probe into the allegations of misappropriation of funds by the trust headed by Salman Khurshid and wife.
