New Delhi, Aug 16 (ANI): The Congress Party on Tuesday said that Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav's warning to the Uttar Pradesh government and to Chief Minister and son Akhilesh Yadav not to target his brother Shivpal Yadav was indicative and supportive of its "27 Saal UP behaal" campaign.

"Mulayam Singh has put his stamp on the Congress anti-government and ' 27 Saal UP behaal' campaign being carried out in Uttar Pradesh," Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit told ANI.

"I will welcome his comment, for realising his mistake and realising Samajwadi Party (SP) has become a cheap political party of criminals, land grabbers and people who don't work," he added.

On Monday, Yadav extended support to his younger brother and cabinet minister Shivpal Yadav who had threatened to resign, after charged some party workers and office-bearers with committing "wrongful acts of 'land-grabbing and harassment of the public."

Mulayam said, "Shivpal is working very hard. A few people are against him. If he quits, then the situation for the party will become bad. Half of the people will go with him," Yadav was addressing party workers on the occasion of nation's 70th Independence Day in Lucknow. (ANI)
