New Delhi, Jul 9 (UNI) Samajwadi Party(SP) General Secretary Amar Singh today thanked senior BJP leader Jaswant Singh profusely for ''exposing'' his party leader L K Advani by disclosing that they sought SP's help in toppling the UPA Government.
''Thank you Jaswantji for it,'' Mr Singh said talking to reporters after meeting President Pratibha Patil to hand over to her SP's letter of support to the Government.
He said both Mr Jaswant Singh and Mr Advani were making contradictory remarks, and they should first set their house in order before attacking the SP.
''BJP is charging us with favouring big industrial houses, but let them tell why National security Adviser Brajesh Mishra had become more powerful than the then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee,'' said Mr Singh.
The BJP leaders have attacked the SP saying it had entered into a 123 agreement with the Congress for closing cases pending against Mulayam Singh Yadav, Amitabh Bachchan and himself, which was not true, said Mr Singh.
''But, I want to tell the BJP there are no cases pending against either Mr Bachchan or me, and in the case against party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, the Supreme Court has okayed our review petition," the SP leader said.
Mr Singh said the nuclear deal was totally in the interest of the country, and his party was supporting the Congress to check the menace of communal forces.
'' The troika of Advani, Modi and Mayawati,'' should be prevented at all costs from coming into power, '' he added.
''Mr Advani is now all sympathy and praise for Ms Mayawati's party and Government, but he should ask Rajnath Singh, what he thinks about the BSP supremo," he said.
