Lucknow, Aug 4: Uttar Pradesh is all set to hold assembly elections in 2017, but political mud-slinging has already begun in the state.
Former BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya made a controversial remark on Congress party's chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit.
While interacting with media in Shravasti district, Maurya said, "Congress leaders make slogans for the youth, but they have projected Delhi's rejected stuff here. It proves that Congress is short of young leaders."
His shameless remarks were reportedly made on July 31.
Speculations are rife that Maurya may join hands with either the BJP on Aug 8 or with the ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh.
