New Delhi, June 27(ANI): Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday criticised Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav's comments that he would bulldoze all the memorials eructed by Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh.
"As far as Mulayam Singh Yadav's statement that we will run a bulldozer on the constructions, we are not in favour of this culture. Whatever construction has been made, Congress Party does not believe in such 'bulldozer culture' if the constructions have been done by any elected government," said Digvijay Singh, All India Congress Committee General Secretary in-charge for Uttar Pradesh.
"Congress is very clear that it has nothing to do with the ongoing spat between SP and BSP in UP on the issue. The basic issue is: should people's money be wasted in this manner as has been done in UP?," Digvijay Singh added.
Bharatiya Janata Party leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that Mulayam Singh Yadav way is not the way to function in a democracy. But he, however, added that by unveiling her own statue, Mayawati has made a mockery of her self and her ideology
"The installation and unveiling of her own statues by the UP chief minister is a serious issue. The solution is not just criticism of such acts but her answerability to the people. Crores of money from public exchequer has been spent," said Rajiv Pratap Rudy, spokesperson of the Bharatiya Janata Party. (ANI)
