Modi copied my idea, says Mulayam

Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the latter’s Clean  India mission and said that Modi had “copied” his (Mulayam) idea.

“I had raised the issue of cleanliness way back in the 90s. We had talked about constructing toilets.Modi is only copying us,” Mulayam said at an event here. He also sought to make light of Modi’s mission saying that cleanliness could only
be achieved by eradicating poverty.

“We will have to first eradicate poverty...we will then become clean”, he went on to add.
The SP supremo also pulled up his son Akhilesh Yadav’s government in the state and said that the pace of work in the state was very slow. “There is a need to complete the projects on time”, he asserted.

He also appeared to be upset with the ministers and asked them to show him some good results within a fortnight.

He also rejected the criticism over the grand celebrations at Rampur on his birthday and said that not a single penny had been spent on the programes from public fund.
