Lucknow, July 16: Vehemently refuting the allegations of Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh about MPs being offered Rs 25 crore to vote against the UPA government during the confidence vote, the BSP in Uttar Pradesh today said it retorted that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the SP were used to such tactics but not the BSP.
''The allegations are a bundle of lies and hold no waters whatsoever,'' the Bahujan Samaj Party state president Swami Prasad Maurya said in a press conference here.It was for everyone to believe that BSP never indulged in such gimmicks and it was the only party which entertained leaders from other parties in the partyfold on the condition of contesting the polls, he said.
Mr Maurya was furious over SP MP Akhsay Pratap Singh, brother of mafia-turned legislator Raghuraj Partap Singh alias Raja Bhaiyya, on his complaint to his party High Command of the offer being made to him from BSP. ''This is a blatant lie and Akshay Pratap Singh would have to pay price for it,'' he threatened adding the days of mafiosi were over in UP wher the rule of law prevailed.
It may be recalled that Amar Singh had attributed his allegation of horse-trading to the SP MP and said he had written to him in this regard.
