Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party's National General Secretary Naseemuddin Siddiqui has roared against the opposition - the government in power, Samajwadi Party. Boasting about his stature in the state, he said that Azam Khan, senior Samajwadi Party minister, should not feel overwhelmed of the fact that he is not probing against the previous governments, rather if he has guts, he should set up investigation against them.
During a press conference in Lucknow on Friday, Naseemuddin said that the Samajwadi Party can't investigate against the past governments as they can't do it.
On a lighter note, commenting on SP, the leader stated Mulayam Singh Yadav as Super Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav as Chief Minister and many more lined up in the chair's (Chief Minister's) contention as there is cut throat competition.
Siddiqui said that Mulayam Singh Yadav should come up with reasons why he had given Akhilesh cent percent on completion of 100 days and now, why he is not happy with his working procedure?
This indicates towards Naseemuddin's fearlessness in SP's government as he openly challenges the party, single handedly. It may also be the case that he has some inter-connection with Akhilesh's government and which is why he is not held despite being under surveillance under a number of scams.
Air around Siddiqui may be a bit easier to breathe but he should not at all forget that he himself has been allegedly involved in a number of scams including that of the Ponty Chadhha and the Irrigation Department Scam.
As per sources, if one looks at Naseemuddin's works, who had 12-14 departments under him during the Mayawati tenure as CM, he was allegedly involved in a number of foul-plays. Siddiqui is said to have been involved with the Delhi based businessman Ponty Chadhha in the multimillion Sugar Mill scam. He was also said to be engulfed in Public Works Department (PWD) Scam, and the Excise department scam in which he partnered with Chadhha.
