Cong adopts 'use and throw' policy on allies: Amar Singh

Uttar Pradesh assembly's budget session off to stormy start
The Samajwadi Party on Wednesday stepped up its attack on the Congress accusing it of virtually adopting a 'use and throw' policy towards allies ranging from the Left parties to the Nationalist Congress Party, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the SP itself.

"When the utility is over the Congress even does not recognise. That is clearly visible," SP general secretary Amar Singh [Images] told media persons in Mumbai [Images], as the criticism of the Congress remained unabated in the wake of fresh developments in the Supreme Court on the disproportionate asset case against party cheif Mulayam Singh Yadav [Images].

Singh recalled that cases against Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati [Images] vanished when her party supported the Congress in the presidential election.

"Once elections are over, the cases resurface," Amar Singh said.

Citing some other instances, he said that cases are slapped depending on relationships."When the relationship with Left soured, the Central Bureau of Investigation was behind Communist Party of India-Marxist's Pinarayi Vijayan. From Vijayan of Kerala [Images] to NCP's Prfaul Patel of Maharashtra, from SP's Mulayam Singh in UP to RJD's Lalu Prasad in Bihar..." the SP leader said.

Alleging that the CBI was being used as a tool, Amar Singh said that a question mark has risen over the impartiality of the investigating agency.
