Manmohan Singh Kolkata, Sep 11 (IANS) Launching a strong attack on the UPA government, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Tuesday said it lacked in clear cut policies and direction and his party was opposed to many of its actions thus “fulfilling the role of the opposition”.

Mulayam Singh, whose party is providing outside support to the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), told reporters here that the country now faced many challenges caused by the wrong policies of the government.

“As far as the country is concerned, there are many big challenges before it. And the challenges have been caused by the wrong policies of those running the country. You can see there is no clear policy…. and we don’t know where they want to take the country,” he said.

“We are in touch with the government, but there is no direction,” he said.

The Samajwadi Party chief said the country was not satisfied as the truth has not come out about the scams during the present government.

“Some questions that were raised in Lok Sabha … there were some debates. I think the country is not satisfied. Because the truth hasn’t come out. There are so many scams and so much corruption,” said Mulayam Singh, who is here for the two-day national executive meeting of his party beginning Wednesday.

“No one had dreamt this would happen. And who are involved… big big people… who knows where the coal scam will go? No one knows. Every day there are new things in the newspapers,” he said.

Mulayam Singh said the situation had presented a huge challenge for his party.

“Especially before us who are in opposition… it is not that we are against them, against the party. We are against their party’s misdeeds which are not good for the country”

Asserting that his party was neither against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh or his colleagues, he said: “We are against their policies which they must correct. That is the role of the opposition and we are fulfilling that”.
