Beni Prasad Verma , the much controversial Union Steel Minister,who once belonged to the SP(now in Congress) had previously accused SP supremo ,Mulayam Singh of having ‘terrorist connections’ in a rally. This had created a big chaos in the House as well where Mulayam and Beni,attacked each other verbally. Beni did not seem being sorry about his statement while SP demanded his resignation from his post as a compensation of their supremo’s insult from the government. Meanwhile,DMK(an ally of current government) quit the government over the Sri Lanka issue which could cripple the government if SP (which is supporting the UPA government from outside) takes its hands off due to Beni’s statement !
While Beni Prasad went to meet Manmohan Singh , the Prime Minister, Sonia met Mulayam Singh (probably to convince him to calm down on Beni Prasad’s issue). Sooner than later, Beni Prasad stated he regretted if his remarks (on Mulayam) hurt sentiments and that he apologizes for the same . 😀
Well, this is what we call politics . Nobody is a permanent friend or foe ! 😀
