We will stand by UP government: Chidambaram

Lucknow, Mar 29 : As the rift between the ruling Congress and Samajwadi Party (SP) widened, Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Friday said the Centre will 'stand by' the Uttar Pradesh government.


Chidambaram was seen sharing the stage with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and SP leader Akhilesh Yadav at a function in Lucknow on Friday.

"I assure the Chief Minister, his team and Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) that the government of India will stand by the Uttar Pradesh government," Chidambaram said at the function.

Chidambaram gave the assurances days after SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav called the Congress party as one of cheats and clever people.

Mulayam Singh Yadav used expressions like "dhokebaaz" and "chalak" (cheats, clever) for Congress at a rally at Sefai (Saifai) under Etawah district in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday.

The Congress depends on SP's support at the Centre after the pullout by the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) over the Sri Lanka issue last week.

Mulayam Singh Yadav has indicated possibility of early polls and called for a coalition government at the centre.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, however, said that his United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government would survive its full term of five years.
