Barabanki: Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Varma has again taken jibe at Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav. Referring to Mulayam's recently made statement claiming that BJP senior leader LK Advani never lies, Beni said, "how can a leader, whose party never sticks to the truth, can never lie."
He further said that the statement points towards the political equations which may emerging in the time to come.
The fresh remarks of Beni came two days after Mulayam, referring to Advani's comments on law and order in Uttar Pradesh, sought an improvement in governance saying Advani is a person who "never lies."
Advani had pulled up Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh few days back saying that the law and order problem was worrying, which Mulayam agreed to.
"Advani sahab says UP is in very bad state and corruption is rampant. Now I have to assess the situation when a senior leader like Advani says such a thing. He never lies. He always speaks the truth, as I have said many times. I'll go and meet him again," Mulayam had said in Lucknow on March 23.
Meanwhile Beni admitted that scams did take place during the UPA rule, but said those who were involved, have been sent behind the bars.
