BJP was clownish to accept traitors before!
Mulayam a traitor, says Kalyan
LUCKNOW: Snubbed by Mulayam Singh Yadav, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh today called the Samajwadi Party chief a “traitor” and indicated he was willing to return BJP while his son Rajbir Singh resigned from SP. “Mulayam is a traitor. He did not have the courage to accept defeat in the recent bypolls and is blaming me for it.I have committed many mistakes in my life and accepting the friendship with Mulayam was the biggest one,” Kalyan Singh told reporters here a day after the SP supremo dissociated himself with the former BJP leader. Asked about his future political course and rejoining BJP, Kalyan said “all options are open”.”Mein RSS ka swayamsewak tha aur abhi bhi hun” (I was a worker of RSS and am still there)”, the former BJP leader said while talking of strengthening Hindutva ideology. He claimed both Mulayam and SP general secretary Amar Singh had visited his house in Delhi and Lucknow and wanted him to join the party but he declined the offer and would stick to his stand in future also.”Mulayam is blaming me for the defeat in bypolls stating that Muslim voters drifted from SP. But I want to ask why 40 per cent voters did not vote for SP in Firozabad. Similarly, OBCs, Brahmins, Thakurs, Nishads and other castes did not vote for SP”, Kalyan said asking Mulayam to introspect about the real casue behind SP’s dismal performance in bypolls.About BJP, Kalyan Singh said though there were “some problems” in the party with RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat “taking its charge”, BJP would “soon emerge stronger”.
