Lucknow, June 24 (IANS) Two days after the Samajwadi Party leadership praised Bahuhan Samaj Party rebel Swamy Prasad Maurya, Uttar Pradesh PWD Minister Shivpal Singh Yadav on Friday described him as someone “who has lost his mental balance”.
Shivpal, the younger brother of SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said, told reporters in Kanpur that Maurya has lost his mental balance because he got more than what he deserved in the Bahuhan Samaj Party (BSP).
Maurya required medical help, Shivpal said.
The harsh words from Shivpal come a day after the BSP rebel described Samajwadi Party (SP) as a party of goondas.
It was only on Thursday that Shivpal’s nephew and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had praised Maurya, calling him a “good man, popular leader who was in a wrong party”.
Sources said Swamy Prasad Maurya was in New Delhi on Friday and was in touch with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership to discuss a “respectable joining”.
