Beni Prasad remarks spark fresh SP ire

LUCKNOW, March 30, 2013 PTI

Reacting sharply to Union Minister Beni Prasad Verma's remark on its poll prospects, the Samajwadi Party on Saturday said the Congress would suffer due to such "baseless" statements and demanded his removal from the Union Ministry.

Talking about the poll prospects of various parties in U.P., Mr. Verma had on Friday said that Mulayam Singh Yadav's party would win only four seats in the next Lok Sabha polls and there would be a "funeral procession for the party."

Flaying the Congress leader's statement, SP spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary told PTI, "He has stooped down too low and is making baseless statement which are far from truth."

He noted that Mr. Verma's son had lost his security deposit in Barabanki and Mr. Verma too had lost his deposit in Faizabad in the last elections.

"He will be nowhere in the next Lok Sabha elections and Congress will have to suffer due to such baseless statement," he said, adding, "He is an ungrateful person. Initially, he was just a worker of 'netaji'(Mulayam Singh Yadav)."

SP general secretary Ram Asrey Kushwaha said, "He (Beni) has lost his mental balance." He said that as per Mr. Verma's calculation, all parties combined would get 90 seats, whereas there are only 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.

"Media and people should not take cognisance of his statement," Mr. Kushwaha said while demanding removal of Mr. Verma from the Union Ministry.

He said that it was "unfortunate" that a person like him was made a minister.
