Jamshedpur, July 24: The murder of lawyer and BJP leader Prakash Yadav has fanned verbal duals between leaders of the treasury benches and the opposition. On Wednesday, legislator Saryu Roy had described Abhay Singh the leader of the erstwhile JVM who joined the BJP folds as a new bride. Abhay Singh was quick to retort to Roy�s remarks by stating, �A sterile woman is jealous of a new bride.�
Addressing a press meeting at his Kasidih office today, Abhay Singh accused the East Jamshedpur Assembly constituency legislator of dubbing the BJP leader and lawyer�s murder as being politicized without going to the place of incident and taking adequate information. Abhay said, �When he (Saryu Roy) had arrived in Jharkhand from Bihar to become a part of the political scenario here 15 years ago, he came here as a newlywed bride. We took him around town garnering votes for him. At that point of time he had no grudge against anyone but after I came to the BJP he started finding faults and facing difficulties.�
The BJP leader claimed, �I believe in clean politics and practice clean ways. If anyone finds a spot in my political career, I will renounce politics forever. As far as the talk of his paying back the allegations against him with counter allegations along with interest, I can tell him that I can play the game of repaying with compound interest.�
Questioning the authenticity of the three member investigation team set up by Saryu Roy to dig up the cause of the crime and other matters he had accused a party leader of, Abhay Singh said that none of the members including lawyer Ravi Shankar Pandey, a retired DSP and a Birsanagar resident was beyond corruption.
On being questioned on former Chief Minister and current central Minister Arjun Munda being accused by the deceased lawyer�s brother Dinesh Yadav as sheltering accused Amulya Karmakar the BJP leader simply said, �Arjun Munda is our senior leader. We may have differences of opinion but not of hearts.�
Abhay Singh accused the allegations thrown by the legislator as pieces of mental concoction. �By saying such things he is trying to drive a wedge in the BJP ranks in order to save himself,� he stated.
BJP Mahanagar president Gunjan Yadav and district general secretary were present during the press conference.
