Centre threatening in name of inquiries: Mulayam

Mulayam Singh Yadav

Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday alleged that the Congress-led UPA government is more interested in "targeting" its political opponents instead of working for the poor people.

"The Centre is trying to threaten in the name of inquiries. The ruling Congress party did not think in the interest of poor and ignores them," Yadav said while addressing party workers here.

Giving a strong message to partymen to end infighting, Yadav said the names of the candidates declared for Lok Sabha polls would not be changed in any circumstance.

"The candidates declared for Lok Sabha will not be changed. If someone is unhappy with ticket distribution, I will explain them and let them understand," he said.

Yadav said he would soon call a meeting of candidates to discuss future strategy, besides asking party workers to concentrate on their areas.
