Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav Tuesday said that the party's sole aim was to win Delhi and defeat the communal forces. Addressing workers in a meeting at the party headquarters here Yadav said, "Our real aim is to win Delhi. We have won Uttar Pradesh because of the hard work of party workers. Our government in the state has done loads of good work which no other government in the country has ever done. Now the need is to propagate them."
He said, "With maximum seats, we will be in a decisive position and will have a say in the formation of the next government at the centre." He alleged that the BJP and Congress were hand in gloves and BSP was also with them.
He accredited SP's capability to win over communal forces in the country to its experience of tackling them during Muzaffarnagar riots, and claimed it to be the only political outfit in the country capable of doing so. "SP had direct fight with communal forces in UP. BJP's prime ministerial candidate, who is responsible for the Gujarat massacre is spreading communalism... Only SP can defeat BJP," Yadav said.
The SP veteran also expressed his desire to become the PM at the meeting. Asking workers to take their responsibilities seriously, Yadav alleged, "The opposition (in the state) is making issues out of nothing. Whenever any mishap takes place in the state, strict action is taken. This shows alertness of the government," he added.
