New Delhi, Feb 11: Expelled Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh attacked Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday, Feb 11, and called him as a "green snake in the grass" for Muslims.
Singh said, "I don't support Kalyan Singh ideologically, but personally feel he is better than Mulayam Singh Yadav... At least people like Kalyan and Bal Thackeray openly attack Muslims."
"These people are less dangerous than those secular leaders, who say they are with Muslims but stab them in their back. Who is more dangerous, the enemy who is visible or the one who is like a green snake in the grass. It is for you to decide," Singh said.
Singh was addressing a symposium on 'Prevailing Conditions in the Country and Muslims' organised by Muslim Political Council of India.
"Mulayam Singh Yadav said he and Kalyan Singh came closer in order to consolidate Yadav and backward community votes, thinking that even if Muslims don't vote for SP, the Yadav-OBC votes would far outnumber them," he said.
He further said, "However this plan of his backfired as Muslims left him and backward votes could not be consolidated."
"The party leadership conveniently put the entire blame on me, as I was the dustbin of the party," he added.
