New Delhi, Jul 20: Reeling under the impact of rebellion by some of his MPs, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav launched a scathing attack on the Left, BSP and UNPA partners for their ''opportunism'' and declared that ''the party was one minus those who sold themselves for money.'' He also declared that he would never have any pact with the BJP, no matter whoever parted company with his party.
''The current developments have exposed the secular claims of the Left, Mr Chandra Babu Naidu and of so many others,'' he said at a crowded press conference here just 24 hours ahead of the trust motion in Parliament. The SP chief asserted that all reports of any split in the party were wrong and said only those who wanted money had deserted the party.
The SP leader accused the BSP of using money to fuel rebellion in his party.
He also sought to warn the Left for its new-found friendhsip with the BSP and advised it to have a rethink over what it was doing.
