MP Ram Gopal Yadav hits at Mulayam and two other party leaders
Although most of other Samajwadi Party leaders have softened their stand after national president Mulayam Singh Yadav made his views on many issues concerning the party and the family known on Monday, one chief minister Akhilesh Yadav loyalist and party member in Rajya Sabha, Ram Gopal Yadav, has not come around and is still in a defiant mood.
Lucknow: Although most of other Samajwadi Party leaders have softened their stand after national president Mulayam Singh Yadav made his views on many issues concerning the party and the family known on Monday, one chief minister Akhilesh Yadav loyalist and a Rajya Sabha member Ram Gopal Yadav, has not come around and is still in a defiant mood.
Talking to media persons here on Tuesday not only did he make a direct attack on him but also on fellow Upper House member Amar Singh whom Mulayam called his “ saviour” and “ brother”. Ram Gopal who has been expelled from the party for six years has described the action “ unconstitutional”.
“ Under the party constitution before sacking a member his or her case has to be examined by the disciplinary committee. The party president can expel him or her only after the committee finds the charges true. There is no provision in the constitution for summary expulsion”, he told them.
Hitting his brother, Mulayam, hard he went to the extent of calling his statement on Amar Singh “ nonsensical”. “ Netaji has said that he cannot part with Amar Singh and Shivpal because they have saved me on many occasions. Amar Singh has saved me from the CBI. I cannot forget whatever he has done to me “ he quoted him as saying,
The reason he has given for it is that the CBI or for that matter any independent institution like the court cannot be influenced by anybody. As such the statement that he “ managed the CBI is non-sensical”, he blurted out.
The importance given by him to Amar Singh is undeserving for another reason that he has no political influence in the state or outside. “ One who could not get a member elected to the state assembly after forming a new party, how could he be called influencial” he wondered..
The RS member believed that a leader of stature should think twice uttering a sword in public. This kind of statement lowers the image of the leader.
Ram Gopal has been lately backing Akhilesh to the hilt and was the first to write to Mulayam after his removal from the post of state president which he was holding in addition to chief minister’s post. He is also a known Amar and Shivpal baiter.
