"When the Supreme Court asked the union government to provide free foodgrains to the poor, it had refused to do so and now it is throwing the food bill bait to the poor, the SP chief said.

Lucknow, Aug 16 - Samajwadi Party - chief Mulayam Singh Yadav once again targeted Congress Friday and accused it of shedding crocodile tears for the poor.

Addressing party workers in the state capital Lucknow, Yadav said Congress has always indulged in vote bank politics and as the 2014 Lok Sabha elections were approaching, it was speaking of providing free foodgrains to the poor.

When the Supreme Court asked the union government to provide free foodgrains to the poor, it had refused to do so and now it is throwing the food bill bait to the poor, the SP chief said. He also accused the Congress of carving Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh as the party feared defeat in the general polls.

Predicting a bright future for the Third Front, Yadav said neither the Congress nor the Bharatiya Janata Party would form the next government. The SP, he added, would emerge as a gainer in the general elections and nobody would be able to form the next government without its support, he said.
