New Delhi, Jul 9 (UNI) BJP vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today accused the Samajwadi Party of having used the name of former president A P J Abdul Kalam to meet its own political ends to extend support to the tottering UPA government.
In a statement, Mr Naqvi said former UP Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav should reveal what exactly Dr Kalam had conveyed to them which made them to change their stand overnight concerning the Indo-US nuclear deal and the Congress-led UPA government.
He said many SP leaders including party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav were facing several cases in UP and demanded Mr Yadav to clarify the deal behind the deal.
He also criticised Mr Yadav of using religion to make ties with the Congress and said he did not enjoy majority Muslim support.
Asked for BJP's reaction on the Left formally withdrawing their support to the UPA government, Mr Naqvi said it was their political compulsion as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh did not pay any heed to their threats. Otherwise the Left never made any noise or threatened to pull out their support on burning issues like price rise, inflation, farmers suicide and unemployment dogging the youth of the country.
