In an embarrassment to SP government in Uttar Pradesh,a ruling party MLA on Friday alleged that corruption during the Akhilesh Yadav government has surpassed what was witnessed in Mayawati’s tenure.

Attacking the government for the second time this week,Mohammad Rizvi,MLA from Sikandarpur in Ballia district,said,“Officers posted at the fifth floor (of CM’s secretariat) are not listening to MLAs’ grievances and are misleading the CM. Akhilesh has failed to keep a check on them and they are not paying heed to his directions,” Rizvi told reporters.

Rizvi said corruption is rampant in the present government “and it has broken all records… even corruption during Mayawati’s regime.”

He alleged that the CM lacked “will power and sternness” to run his government,saying this can botch political prospects of party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav. He also advised two ministers — Ambika Chowdhury and Ram Govind Chowdhury — from the district to hold a review meeting with party leaders to know the ground reality.

Revenue Minister Ambika Chowdhury,when asked about the MLA’s charge,said he had always heard whatever matter Rizvi brought to his notice and added that charge of rise in corruption in the present regime was “baseless”.
