New Delhi, July 3 (ANI): The Samajwadi Party (SP) on Wednesday hit back at Beni Prasad Verma over his comments on Mulayam Singh Yadav, saying the Union Steel Minister is insane.
Verma had on Tuesday said that the SP chief was not even fit to sweep the Prime Minister's residence.
Reacting to Verma's comment, SP leader Kamal Farooqi called him insane and said he does not know how to behave.
"The kind of language, which Beni Prasad is continuously using, it is highly objectionable. It is for Congress to think whether such minister would continue with them or not. We are not in the habit of reciprocating the same because we believe in certain values, we don't believe in abusive. As far as Mulayam Singhji is concern, he is the most senior leader of the country," Farooqi said.
"What can be said about an insane person who does not know how to behave and what language to use. It is very surprising and unfortunate that the Congress is not acting against him," Farooqi added.
Verma on Tuesday kicked up another controversy by saying that Mulayam Singh Yadav was not even fit to sweep the Prime Minister's residence, drawing instant rebuke from the Congress.
"Yadav wants to become Prime Minister. He should first try to get the job of a sweeper at the residence of the PM," 77-year Verma said at a programme in Uttar Pradesh's Faizabad. (ANI)
